great first post. my ultrasonic never had any probs, i just decided i preferred the simplicity of perlite. but the ice cubes tip is a good one.

I recently did away with my humidifier.... I've replaced it with a cut off 2 liter bottle.. inside the bottle i have a cheap aquarium powerhead that has a aeration inlet to which ive hooked up a cheap aquarium air pump. Inside the bottle is plain tap water to which a add a few ice cubes every day to make up for evaporation. I find that the constant flow of air and moving water makes perlite in the grow chamber unneccesary but i guess it couldnt hurt... I fan twice a day for a few minutes .. once when i wake up and once when i go to sleep.
Its a very low maintenence setup.. Ive actually left it unattended for 2 - 3 days at a time without harm.. My guess is that the constant
glow of air from the air pump helps if you miss fanning..This setup maintains between 92-98% humidity for me in a 40 gallon rubbermaid. The one drawback is you loose a little space in the grow chamber. I like to keep the casings about 4" away from the water bottle on either side..I'm starting to enjoy growing these things more than i like eating them
