humidity problems ...
    #2445868 - 03/18/04 02:47 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I was thinking about using my incubator as an fruiting chamber too , but the problem is humidity ...
I have an aquarium heater set for temperature , but it doesn't give enough humidity ... What to do now ? I have no perlite and no other stuff to soak water in there , should i just put some eater on the bottom with added bleach or h2o2 ? Could that provide enough humidity ? ( the casing container is then gonna be placed on the water ) ...

Can i just squirt some water on the casing every time i open the incubator/fruiting chamber becose of the humidity loss ???

But what with the air exchange ? Should i fan some fresh air every few hours in there and then spray some water in to get stabile humidity again ???

Please give me some advices ...



This is how my incubator/fruiting chamber looks like ...  :yesnod:

you realy need to get some perlite or geolite/hydroton.
lava rocks also work....there called scoria

alternativly you could use a "cool mist humidifier" or an "ultrasonic"

Perlite is pretty cheap, the reason that it's good at helping to maintain the humidity in the chamber is because it's porous, that coupled with the shape of the pieces it provide thousands of rough points for evaporation of the water
Hydroton/geolite work retty much the same way

for a quick convert, remove the heater and pour wetted perlite into the area you will fruit in, it really doesnt get easier

I failed to think about your location, here is some infor on perlite
http://www.perlite.net/

its basicly used in flower soil that you buy from a garden center, its an expanded lava rock that wicks up and retains water, for more info check the link

Hydroton and Geolite expanded clay aggregate, it's marketed to the consumer as a hydroponics medium but originaly was developed for the concrete industry, if you can find a large concrete company they should be able to provide you with it
