Im worried about the motor shorting because of the high Rh.. Ill try it if i cant hunt down a good humidifier at a pawn shop or garage sale.

Try it. Put the cool mist inside on one side of the terrarium, and your humidity guage on the other side. See how well it works.

I was wondering why u would sudjest this but i relized that its because it does both air exchange and humidity, but my terrarium has intake and outake already.. Just need a high powered humidifier..

I now wish i had simply just installed an ultrasonic and coolmist but ill get better air exchange now..

if the humidifier is inside the terrarium you would still need a source of fresh air. my holmes ultrasonic works awesome. its humidity output was enormous until I did the resitor trick.

Fans WTF? Just hook up a pre filtered 4" duct going to the inlet and have the humidifier in the grow chamber.

Have two if you need it. The point of having the humidifyer is to exchange air and bring in mosit air

>>The point of having the humidifyer

Is to keep the Rh up in my terrarium

I wanted fans cause I plan on grow Many differnt species of mushrooms in their. and wanted to be able to perfect the environment of the tank.. But would also like to have a humidifier that could keep a constant Rh from 50% to 99%(Thats pushin it tho)

Oh and its no longer help filtered. I just bought a cheap filter that ill fasten down..

I did the math and 100 gal isnt that much space. The guys with those store bought rack greenhouse systems and just use one humidifyer have a good 70-400gal of space.( ~7 gal per sq ft) mabey just a bed of pearlite or growrocks in a tray with airstones?

The only way i can see a fan in there and last would be using a dayton blower.

First i would take it apart and paint the housing and rotor seperatly, protecting the shaft and hole with tape. Use some nice glossy paint, cheap car paint would work well, just allow to set nicely then cure for a good week in a hot and dry place.

White would be a good color to paint the fan + housing so you can watch for growth on the fan. But it might inhibit moldy growth so cleaning would be more often compared to if you painted it black.

You need to mount it with the motor outside the tank and just the fan and rotor on the inside. A 4" holesaw, caulking and 3 screws would do it.

And if its not ball bearing, Once a month make sure to oil the motor, otherwise the bushings goes bad.

I bet that new filter will help. I looked at the workings of the $30 vics cool mist unit i broke, the incoming air is drawn around the fan to cool it and then blow into the chamber. So its safe to say its a bad idea unless it has its own fuse so it dosent take down your grow's lighting and ventilation when it goes.

Hey thanks for the tips on painting it... I did make it lid out of wood so I just painted the whole thing with marine grade paint...

And im going to use the geolight idea like inthe poor mans pod... itll make it easier for cakes.. while I can still have casings right next to them.. Ill post pics when i can get a camera..

Im also looking for ideas to keep the sides of the tank insulated? So no heat escapes and no light gets in..
