humidity/perlite
    #1326958 - 02/22/03 06:05 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I am still having a little prob with humidity peeps.. I am at about 88% Now i hand misted the walls and the top cover. Put it by my floresent light to create some heat. (hoped this would help with Rh prob).. I rechecked the meter and it handt moved. Now i said what the hell.. I added a little water and came back like in 15 mins. it was at like 92%.

So my question is:

Do i have to keep adding water to perlite every so offten?

Did i just not add enough water the first time?

I am faning like 3 times a day. Morning, Afternoon, Night..

Peace!

You might want to make sure your perlite layer is thick enough. I know that I had mine only about 3/4 inch thick and I was having a hard time getting over 80% RH, but the move to 2 inches thick + more water keeps it 95-100%. Also, I think it takes around 24 hours for the RH to stable out or something...

i agree with Altec, more perlite is better .
water level should be about half way up the perlite . add a bubbler in the water and you'll be wanting to vent . :smirk:

that must be my prob.. I only have about 3/4-1" of perlite. Tommorow i will add some more perlite and some more wate with h202..

what should the ratio be between water and h202?

Overheard at a Busstop:

I put about 7 glugs of h202 in mine, the ratio is probably around 5-10%, but more probably won't do any harm. This is my first grow so I am being a bit conservative.
