Martha FAE and Humidity Question
    #11168118 - 10/02/09 05:31 AM (8 years, 21 days ago)

I'm thinking about getting my martha setup running again after my first attempt produced marginal results.

I was using a coolmist + vicks humidifier originally, but from what I have read it sounds like a coolmist by itself
can do the trick.

What I have planned on doing is placing a coolmist on the bottom rack of my martha and running it 24/7.
In addition to that I will cut a few holes in the martha cover for FAE.

Am I going to be able to achieve a RH of ~95%? And will the coolmist + occasional fanning be enough FAE?

def just go with the coolmist. i mean, where i live its getting colder and dryer, i WAS getting away with 15min on, 15min off with the flaps unzipped(couldnt bring myself to cut up my sweet). i went 15on 15off because i noticed my shit was getting soaked, maybe it sitting in a tray of perlite had something to do with that. bottom rack, in the middle, facing the back - i unzip the zippers probably close to 90-95% open. havent fanned yet and had some pretty fantastic results

You have it completely unzipped and you can still maintain 90+% RH??

I suppose its possible, it just seems to me like you would lose all the moisture like that

When i had mine i made slits all over it and put perlite in tubs on the bottom to catch any excess moisture with that it would help keep my humidity up and stopped any leaking.

I can't remember the TEK that I saw this in, but the one that I read about said to place a large shallow rubbermaid at the bottom of the martha that had about 1" or so of perlite in it.

Basically the same idea as what you had going on. I'm gonna give her a test run tomorrow and see how it goes.

my perlite tray ended up with an inch of perlite floating on top of an inch of water, just be sure to keep an eye on it.
