My friend is having a similar problem with a new terrarium. 55 gallon aquarium with a cool mist. Humidity is steady at 75%. Is this because there are no cakes in there yet? My friend is trying to get the setup ready before the cakes are done.

If you read my post, then you must have come to this conclusion, yes.

More ideal? I?m sure there is.
More Expensive and complicated? You bet!
As for the water leaking:
fist, close the original opening and make a second hole fitted with the hose.
second, put a tape around the perimeter of the humidifier where the 2 halves meet. If you have done this, there is no way for it to leak.

And, the goal is NOT that it is on the whole time.

5 minutes every hour is all it needs.

>The Vicks unit was run for 12 hours consecutively and reached 53%.

Again, how many times do you want me to repeat this?
Helloooo, can you hear me??

THE VICKS UNIT IS FOR AIR EXCHANGE, NOT HUMIDIFICATION!!!!!!!!!!!!
5 minutes every hour is all it needs.

I only read this now....INCUBATOR??? How do you mean incubator?? The incubator doesn?t need humidification at all!!

Enter, I understand your frustration bro as I think we have all been there. I also commend Anno for being so patient with this thread. So Enter, listen to Anno. He is telling you a perfect way to set up your terrarium. I use the exact same setup Anno is telling you to use except I only run my coolmist for 2mins every few hours.

I will try to answer some of your questions for you. First, lets be sure your talking about a terrarium (which is used for the fruiting cycle i.e air exchanges, Light, and lower temps.) or if your talking about a incubator( i.e higher temps and almost no air exchange and no light.)

You will only need to use a cool mist in a terrrarium not in an incubator. Now, I know shroomgod says to use a coolmist running for 24 hours a day but in my experience its hard to get the humidity up running it like that, and I don't know why one would want to. I'm happier running it a few minutes every couple hours. Advantages are its quieter, less refills, longer use of the coolmist. If your doing cakes, I would not use a coolmist alone. Use the perlite tek for humidification and use the coolmist to do your air exchanges for you. If your doing casings, use your coolmist for air exchanges and mist your casing once a day to make sure it doesn't dry out. Your casing layer will evaporate enough water to keep the humidity high enough in your terr. so you don't need anything else for humidity. Also, your moist casing layer will protect your substrate from drying out. Your cakes will not have this advantage which is why the higher humidity is needed with cakes via the perlite tek.

Good luck and let me know if you have more questions.

IS the terrarium somehow open? Or is it closed?
What kind of the walls does it have, permeable?
If they are permeable, depending on the material used, it might be difficult to sustain high levels of moisture.
If you read my Antonius thread, you?ll see that I applied some plastics to the walls, because I had difficult sustaining high humidity levels in the winter. Perhaps you should try something similar.

I?d put a layer of moist perlite or geolite on the bottom and check the situation then.
