Ultrasonic humidifier vs. perlite
    #15124665 - 09/23/11 10:07 PM (9 years, 7 months ago)

ive read that for small boxes (rubbermaid and fish tanks ect) that a ultrasonic humidifier is unnecassary and sometimes overkill. just use perlite is what i hear. i want a setup where i have minimum work and can be hidden (have a spot using a rubbermaid bin pf brf style. i can either use the perlite and i would use computer fans to exchange air or i could use a ultra humidifier and it would exchange humidity and air

what do yall think and opinions
thanks the shroomery rocks

welcome to the shroomery. You need to post more info about your grow but from the sound of it your doing cakes in (what should be) a shotgun fruiting chamber. Also fishtanks are no good.

also ultrasonic humidifiers do not provide FAE and a fan would dry out your perlite way to fast.
follow this video and you,ll be fine

i already built the shotgun terrerium but it involves fanning and the only secure time would to be to check it out every other day. with perlite in the bottom for humidity and for now fanning for air exchange,
i was hoping air exchange could be acomplished on a timer and i would come by every two days to harvest and make sure perlite was hydrated. the ultrasonic would give me my moisture and forget about the perlite but i read for shotguns a ultrasonic is unnesacary

so i guess im back at the start, any ideas on getting automated air and humidity in a shotgun terrerium

i was gona use fish airators but that seams like to weak of an air output.
how many hours do you say you put into misting and fanning (or times a day?)?

and probably should post this ? in expiremental but.....
if i took a soday bottle fill with water and had the water evaporating up towards another bottle with the fan in it blowing air across the vapor and into the terraium (understand hot is bad but it would range from 78-86 degrees when it enterd the terrerium (ill post a pic in a little made in paint)

decided not to post the pic but i got an idea..... if the fans only come on long enough to exchange air would the perlite dry out to quick and you could use garden misters to rehydrate the perlite(underneath not comin from top

You're trying to invent what was already invented and discarded over a decade ago.  Build a shotgun terrarium and grow mushrooms in it.  If you have to totally hide your project, wait until you have your own house and can work freely.
