Best Humidification Method...
    #1361321 - 03/09/03 08:47 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I need some advice...my only obstacle is a humidification method. If using a 20 gallon rubbermaid container what is the best method for humidification...here are the restrictions...

1. Not very expensive (max $40)
2. Not noisy!!!
3. Easy enough to accomplish without major tools (i.e. drill bit, electric drill)
4. Not messy or smelly

So have any ideas for me? Thanx in advance.

well cool mist humidifiers are pretty quiet. now hand spraying is ok if your just doing cakes it will do the job. also if you take perlite and put it in a jar you wont have too line the bottom with it thus not a big mess to clean up add some h202 so it dosent get nasty and fill th water half way up the jar and the perlite should be to the top to pint jars full should be enoughsome time i have to heat the jars up but they wick the water better for some reason, of corse thats when its under constant heat like a heating pad. how are you airing these out???????
cause if your manually doin that you might as whell hand mist and remember dont directy spray cakes after pinning also air is really important trust me once my cat started airing out he noticed a vast improvment like double the yeild in number and weight.mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm good luck

Dont know but wouldn't a straw stuck inside the half and fill the straw with water help out on the humidity. or just feed the cakes.

Perlite fits your criteria but it can be a bit messy. You can minimize this by putting your perlite into small tubs and then putting the tubs inside your fruiting chamber. The tubs make it easy to remove, easy to clean and easy to replace.

you can pick up a good humidifier at walmart for under 30. Then pick up some pvc piping for another 5 and some foam sealant for 5 and that will give you an awesome automated setup.

I use that geolite stuff as well but it's called hydroleca in Britain.

Its a lightweight clay aggregate formed by special clay minerals expanded at high temperature. The pebbles are sterile, non-toxic, inert, resistant to algae and extremely strong, and can absorb up to 40% of their own weight in water and are also alot less messy to work with than perlite.

Where did you get yours? That stuff makes perlite suck.
