Humidifier, Did I do bad
    #1553679 - 05/16/03 11:35 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have just bought a bionaire cool mist humidifier but it uses a fan and wet wick to create moisture...I thought this type was called evaporative?
Will it work? for casings?
It is the type with 2 humidity levels..

Not sure.I bought one,had it in a portable closet,and it couldnt get the humidity up enough. No good way to hook it up to a rubbermaid tub,so its just sitting there. Post a pic if youve got one,and I'll bet somebody here could tell you if you can hook it up.

With casings, you need less humidity, so it should work. Afoaf has had trouble with a humidifier hooked into a rubbermaid terrarium because the air flow the humidifier caused. RH would be around 85% (w/ perlite). But he has a cool mist as well, and 85% is good for casings.

I posted a very similar question a few weeks ago and the consensus was that wick filters apparently promote contamination more readily. I sugest a 1.2 gal. Cool Mist made by Kaz. It's about $20.00 at K-Mart and has worked wonders for my buddy.

Will work fine, yet the risk of contamination is significantly higher, almost exponential, with the longer it is used. I highly suggest a modified bulk humidifier using Myco-curious' Bulk humidifier tek. This way no matter what size fc you end up using you will have the materials. Don't skimp now and you will not have head/heart aches later when things didnt go right due to a lack of adequate planning and preparation.
