dude set that badboy high up in your terrarrium and screw the garden hose unless it's a small terr.
remember too much hose = not enough humidity



at least thats what kramer says

go with less than 12'' of hose.
pipe it in near the top.
and run it less than 15min an hour and it should work well

Mine is a bigger model than that, still Vicks Cool Mist brand, the $40 one. It has different output, but yeah, everything is duct-taped except the hose outlet. I use 1/2 inner diameter hose. The hose is less than a foot long and goes into the top of my terrarium above the drip shield.

I run it 24/7 on the lowest setting. It usually keeps my hygrometer pegged at 99.9% RH, though it dips a bit when I open her up. I LOVE MY COOL MIST!!! First harvest coming this weekend :smile:

I had the same problem with that brand so I brought a different one. I can't leave the one on 24/7 or the humidity gets too low in the terrarium. I have to do 10-15 minutes max with cool mist--then put spray--then fan to get the CO2.

But everyone is different. Good luck.

I've never SEEN any trace of moisture with my hose. If you've seen an ultrasonic, a cool mist is a different critter. If I didn't have an expensive hygrometer to tell me that it was working perfectly, I'd swear it wasn't putting out any moisture at all. There is very little condensation in my terrarium and the level in my tank never seems to go anywhere. But I've got fruits, and they're starting to grow exponentially.

With Cool Mist, you can't go by what you see. You need a hygrometer. But they work very nicely. I've tried everything else, and this was the only solution for my 18-gallon. Hell, I wanna be the Cool Mist poster boy. I want my av slapped on the side of every Cool Mist sold.

I am having luck so far with my poor mans pod. My hygro goes up to 99 then pegs out and stays there. There is no visible signs of humidity though.

Dayyam, that's dreadfully low. Maybe an ultrasonic would work better for you, but that cuts back on the air flow. I assume you've read ShroomGod's Humidifier Tek:

http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/7994

I had bad problems with drops on my cakes with an ultrasonic, but any port in a storm. Christ, at 50-some-odd percent RH, I wouldn't be able to sleep. Get in there with a mist bottle and help those babies out, man.

BTW, ShroomGod recommends using a garden hose from the Cool Mist to the terrarium.

You didnt cover up the intake with tape did you? I have no experience with the cool mist but from what ive read you may have a problem with equipment. It is possible that the machine is not working well. Maybe the filter is clogged and you aren't getting enough fresh air in to create the humid exhaust. got pics of your buddies set up?

My observations:
The main goal of hooking a cool mist humidifier to a terrarium is air exchange.

Why not hook a normal 5 dollar computer fan then? Because it will blow dry air into the terrarium and dry it out.
So, we hook up a humidifier.

Now, don?t expect the humidified air to have anything near 100% rH, at least I never experienced it. But it has more than the outside air.

The humidity in the terrarium comes mainly from the casings and whatever you have in it that has water on the surface that can evaporate.
So, if I don?t have many casings in the terrarium, I put containers with wet perlite or similar to add to the evaporation.
Now you see why it?s important to spray the casings with water, so they don?t dry out while contributing to the moist climate in the terrarium.

Questions: YOu say you only reach 55% rH.
How humid is the air outside?
Is it 50%? Then your humidifier doesn?t work properly.

Is water in there? Does it spin? does it blow out moist air or water droplets when it?s not hooked up to the terrarium?
