Humidity question
    #2607206 - 04/27/04 05:53 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I need some help from some veterans considering I'm a newbie (obviously).My setup consists of 3 pop bottles running through a Reli-On ultrasonic humidifier into a terrarium with 10 BRF/verm cakes on a platform of wire mesh. I have B+ cubenis mushies, and a 1/8-1/4" hole in the bottom of my terrarium. I was wondering if this cycle would work for my humidifier (in terms of gas exchange, and other unforeseen variables I have overlooked): 1 hour on, 3 hours off (6 total hours of humiditiy /day). The humidity remains b/w 97-99% at all times (I assume that's good), but I just wanted to know if, considering a hole is in the base, there are any problems with this?

If the stream of air coming from the humidifier is strong enough, you could stuff the hole with polyfill, and prevent any unwanted spores and bacteria from entering, like the polyfill filter lid fo simple minds.
Other than that, and teh cakes, your plan sounds exactly like the one my friend uses. :smirk:
