tropic aire in a PMP ?
    #2250506 - 01/18/04 03:05 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

well i'm starting to gather some things to finally build my self a PMP of my own (big thanks to magash), and i came across a tropic aire humidifier in my basement... I tried to put this in a fruiting chamber before, and didn't have very good results (the pump said it was rated at 50 gallons, and the sterlite i was using was only 35) so i ended up just doing perlite which worked great, but was a pain in the ass...

My last attempt at groing creepers on BRF cakes turned out fairly well, but I am going to attempt casings this time (I think I may try burmas from ralphster), and i just had a few questions. 1) in a PMP would this even be necesarry (or harmful? is there such a thing as to much humidity for a casing?) 2) if it is a good idea to throw it on, what size pump should i get to run both of the wands on the bottom and the tropic aire in say a 35 gallon rubbermaide (i ask because my previous attempt at setting up the tropicaire w/a 50 gallon pump did nothing)

any way any insight would be greatly appreciated

1) No. A moist casing layer with 90%-100% RH is fine.

2) 35 gallon rubbermaid is pretty big. My biggest terrarium is 18 gallons and is hooked with a 3500 CC/minute airpump, which is barely enough for 3 air exchanges per hour. Now, for a 35 gallons terrarium, you will need a 7000 CC/minute airpump for similar results but never saw a pump going over 5000 CC.

I can't help you with your humidifier, no experience at all with that kind of stuff. I suggest you to find the most powerfull pump you can afford and plug it on your rubbermaid. Getting a 1 air exchange per hour is good enough...

so for say a 16 gallon tub, i would have to run my pump which runs at 3500, 24hours  or could i have it running on a timer to get good air exchange.
