Cool mist in *conjunction* with a PMP
    #2527919 - 04/05/04 04:06 PM (13 years, 22 days ago)

In another post I told how my kitten's shrooms from her casing were skinny and tall and rather scarce compared to the pictures she's seen here. 

She thinks that it's low air exchange and she wants to to fix the problem.  She uses a poor mans pod, but the bubblers don't seem to be doing enough for the air exchange.  So her question is:  Can she use a cool mist on a timer in conjunction with the PMP for air exchange?  Has anyone done this and had it work well?  She's tired of skinny shrooms.  :tongue: Also, how many hours on/off would be best for the coolmist?

I don?t know what cool mist you?ve got, but mine brings RH up to 92-95% in a greenhouse with no perlite, working at minimum power for 5 minutes every 4. IMO, you?re going to get problems with the RH (way too high).

Temp. is 75-78 degrees at all times. Her humidity-reader won't read above 90%, but the walls always have condensation on them.

Her fruiting chamber is a large rubbermaid bin. She tried doing the coolmist before with this chamber, and it kept sucking all the humidity out and made it too dry. That's why I'm wondering if it would work to have the coolmist running, and the geolite.

Thanks for the help, fellas.

Are you sure the hygrometer is working fine? I had a hygrometer that always read 89% inside the chamber, after testing it with the salt method, it read 65%. I thought I had a nice fruiting RH for casings but it was way too high ( 99% !!!!)

It works, but it stops at 90 and won't go any higher, although I suspect that the humidity is actually quite a bit more then the reading, but there is no way to tell without an accurate humidity meter...that she doesn't have right now.  :frown:
