Ultrasonic Humidification Question
    #3085572 - 09/03/04 02:43 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Im planning to fruit in a 14 gal. tupperware container using an ultrasonic humidifier on a timer and i dont know what i should do for air exchange. Does the humidifier take away any c02 or do i need some kind of air pump? thank u if u reply to this stupid newbie question.

Simply removing the lid a few times a day(3-6 would be best) to fan would be great. 14 Gallon is pretty small, if you happen to have an aquarium pump lying around like me,then feel free to use it. But I wouldn't go out of the way for it. Another great idea used by many is to put a hole filled with polyfil just above the mushies on each side of the bin.

THe holes are best just above the bottom of the bin, because that is where c02 builds up. Polyfil can be found at any craft store in a big bag for a cheap price. I have also heard that you may look in old blankets or stuffed animals for it, tho I am not completely sure that wouldn't just as easily be cotton? Better just stick to buying it!

d00d is right IME. Polyfilled holes just above the bottom worked great for me.

Others say you have to fan 4+ times a day. I haven't found this to be the case.

YMMV
