There are 2 kinds of cool mist... wick, and impeller. Wick has a foam wick that rots out... it absorbs water thats pulled up and shot out... you cant an Impeller type humidifier (wicks suck, go bad fast, and wont provide you will full humidity... it will fluctuate, and not reach capacity). I found my Vicks brand impeller humidifier at HEB, and Ive seen them at some Walgreen's. It has to be the impeller kind though, where it sucks up the water through a fan-blade then spritzes it out... (don't be fooled by the Walgreen's one that has a fan on top, but actually draws air from the fan, and shoots out from the bottom of the unit).

If you have a greenhouse type fruiting chamber, such a a Martha or the like, connect your impeller cool mist up to it and keep it running 24/7. Get an ultrasonic humidifier, set about 50% on, and set it on a timer for about 3 minutes every 2 hours or so.....

Should be good to go! I would fan your FC up to 4-5 times a day for frequent air exchange, especially during pinning!

I went through several wick humidifiers... all the big guys on here stress it indoobioulsly, as now do I, after seeing multiple ppl fail after a short time with their wicks. :smile: Good luck!!!  :thumbup:  :smile:  :mushroom2:

Would you guys consider the ultrasonic worth the effort? Its either refil your normal humidifier once or twice a day or check every two or so hours for the Ultra sonic? I'm lazy so I know what I would choose, but I also think the non-ultrasonic humidifier would be a lot less stress on a lot of people. Also what do you do about periods of sleep? Just hit it for 6 minutes before bed or something?

I'm really curious about these mini-greenhouses(should we even call them green houses? I don't see any green in there!).

The cool mist is FOR SURE (which you prolly knew...) if you can maintain a humidity of 90%+ with the cool mist, the ultrasonic isn't ENTIRELY nesc.... ESPECIALLY with casings which, by their nature, provide a nice micro-climate for pinning. Now the trick with pinning is optimal humidity w/o causing aborts from over-humidity. This 3 min burst of the ultrasonic every 2 hours (on a timer, shouldn't be any hassle, i refill mine very rarely) should cover that w/o aborting any (or not TOO many) pins... The impeller cool mist should need to be refilled once every couple of days, but is very nesc for the operation. Hope this helps!!  :grin: :syringe:
