humidifier to replace perlite?
    #1262178 - 01/30/03 03:11 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

If I get a humidifier, and put it in a rubbermaid plastic container... would i still need to put perlite in the casing? if so, what kind of humidifier's you recommend?

i'd suggest that you NOT place the humidifier inside the chamber (over humid like a bitch!) unless you have one heck of a container. also, perlite does not go in a casing. personally I'd recommend an ultrasonic but that is very much my personal taste, the most reccomended would be the Vicks Cool Mist. you obviously have some studying to do...

uh oh... :smile:

Well, perlite IN the casing is a no-no. Vermeculite, yes, thats good. Perlite is on the bottom of the fruting chamber with water to add moisture to the ambient humidity.

Adding a humidifier would be good, but, you would need to block or tape up the main output of the humidifier and cut/drill holes in it, attach some hoses and run it into the chamber. You will still need some perlite in the terrarium as well as most humidifiers will not reach 100% humidity.

Hope that helps.

Check this link out. I suggest a cold mist humidifier with 5/8" garden hose running vertically to your chamber. This is for a fruiting chamber right?

oh i was confused between the casing and fruiting chamber...

casing is used for colonization of the mycellum right? and for this you use high temperatures... 70-80...

yeah i hope i got that right now, heh
