first time grower...humidifier question
    #11894937 - 01/25/10 12:06 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Hi there. So, following the guide over at erowid (http://www.shroomery.org/8411/The-Magic-Mushrooms-Growers-Guide), made the substrate, steam sterilized, and inoculated a few days ago (inoculated day after sterilization). While I am seeing how colonization turns out I am constructing the terrarium and I ran into a few questions.

First, according to the guide, an unltrasonic humidifier is the best way to go. I am fine with buying one, but my terrarium is only a 15 gallon plastic container so it seems like a lot of humidity overkill. Could a small simple cheap coolmist from walmart keep a terrarium of this size humid enough? Is there a better way to keep it humid than an ultrasonic? Keep in mind I have not done this before. I have not found many forums posts relating to ultrasonics here.

I am looking at this one (http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=12343363) right now. I will also be looking for some temp/humidity gauges so any suggestions on those are appreciated. 

Thanks much

thats wayyy more then enough, I mean think about it man, if you leave that on all day, half the tank would probably go empty... if it can put out half a tank of water in 1 day ( 12 hours meaning), its actually pretty overkill, so get a switch for your plug and make it run on and off. but you have to experiment with this... also I would run a hose or a pipe form it to your terrarium.

You make a shotgun terrarium, hook the humidifier up to it and run it like 15-30 min every 2-3 hours. Excellent results.

Yea that the guide suggests using an ultrasonic on an even smaller container than the one I am using (foam cooler) and it led me to believe it would be on 24/7..

I've seen some pretty impressive results with the humidifier hooked up. Not to mention it automates fanning.
