Vicks Vaporizer in Mini Green house?
    #2343939 - 02/17/04 01:15 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I put a vicks vaporizer in my mini greenhouse with six casings. I put the vaporizer on the top shelf and my casing are on the 2nd and 3rd shelf. There is also trays of perlite covering the floor of the four shelf mini greenhouse. I know the humidity is very high and the vaporizer uses steam, not cool mist to provide moisture. I have read that the steam from this vaporizer maybe too hot but i would like some opinions. As of right now, it has been running for 6 hours and the greenhouse is warm. Will it hurt my casing in anyway?

the moisture may continually collect on the casing making them a swamp over time. that does not seem like a problem to me thought. i dont like humidifies unless used with a hygrometer. it may seem humid with this system but be carefull as humidifiers can trick you. it may look humid when its not thus a hygrometer is nice. as far as steam verses ultrasonic it seam like your lucky using a steam one. you have a heat source with your humidity, just make sure it does not get to hot or humid.

p.s. six casings fit real nice in rubbermade, thay almost humidify them selfs.

the casing are small like 12x9x2 and 7x7. I had them in rubbermaids but they were akward sizes and i wanted something that could be self sufficient for a day or two. Yeah the heat doesnt seem to be too warm and the room is is in, is usually very cold.thanks for some info. in other information welcomed though.

Does anyone think from the hot steam, there will be a higher chance of contamination? All of my casings are cased with coir.

I'm not positive but i've used a warm mist humidifier and never had problems, don't get me wrong never did i put it inside my chamber though. I would definetly get some digital thermometers & hygrometers rigged and have a 24 hour test run before putting my casings in. In short, i don't think you should have a problem.

The warmer steam isn't going to cause contams at a higher rate than usual, but do keep a shifty eye on your temps.
