Need to increase humidity
    #2821860 - 06/23/04 07:38 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys,

I have a chamber set up like the following:

http://forum.thenook.org/index.php?showtopic=4474

I'm only able to get the humidity up to 60% and I need to raise it to get pinning going.. I was planning on just adding some trays with perlite or lava rocks in there, but was wondering if anyone familiar with this type of system knows of any tweaks to increase humidity? The HEPA filter is on the lowest fan setting and it goes on as the same time as the fogger.

this should do it:

http://www.thenook.org/~archives/tek/Fogger.html

It's basically a HEPA filter connected to a 5 gallon bucket with an ultrasonic fogger inside and then the tubing goes to the greenhouse chamber. The HEPA filter has 3 fan settings and I set it on the lowest, because the more air it pushes, the lower the ratio of fog there will be I figured.

In such a case I just place a tray of water with a simple water heater to warm the water up to 24, 25 Celzius (75 F) and subsequentlly raise the humidity in terrarium. How big the tray should be depends on how big is the whole terrarium itself.

try it, it couldn't hurt. Good luck!

Mushy man. Can you use the water heater to humidify a whole 4 tier greenhouse?
