hi ALDOUS, what you plan on doing seems to be a waste of time. Sounds like you did your homework though... Let me say that you should look at a new hum. tek. the one you plan on using is not realy necessery. also you didn't mention if you are casing or not?

If your not living on the edge....Then your taking up to much space.

I'm not casing, I'm growing on straight PF cakes. So why the loss of time? It seems to me that it might work, and that this method is much less messy and that the timer can easily be adjusted to achieve optimal results. Can you be a bit more specific?

Aldous I have thought about trying something like this in the past. It seems like this would work great giving you constaint gas exchange and high humidity.

This is what I was planning to do. Use two tupperware containers and seal the tops of their lids together with some silicon gel or other sealant then cut out the middle leaving about a 1 inch boarder around the edge. Then take a peice of screen and seal it along the 1 inch boarder. Then put your wet perlite on top of the screen, the key is to having all of the screen covered with perlite so the air is forced to go through it. Now put you lids on run your air pump hose below and the hose to your grow chamber form the top. The perlite will probiblely dry out pretty fast, but it would not be hard to remove the lid and remoisten the perlite. I think this would work however I have not tried it myself.
