Perlite humidification and condensation
    #3150581 - 09/18/04 02:30 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Wagwan ,
If a person were to use perlite to humidify a growing chamber, there is a concern with water droplets condensing on the top and raining down on the cakes, right? I've read about the drip/spray shield, but I also read that rubbing Vaseline on the top will prevent droplets from forming there. Which do you think is the best solution?

For me the best solution is to dry it out with a paper towel everytime it,s necessary. In my case, a couple of times a week. I don?t like petroleoum based products cause they can cause mutants and strange things happen.

I don't get enough condensation to worry about on the top. There's some, but it's not a crazy dripping situation.

The Dude has a PMP (not see through) which he cut a big hole in the top of and duct taped on plastic wrap so light can get in but it can stay closed.

He noticed water droplets start to form on this very quickly. Paper towel most likely wouldn't work (too often), so is vaseline really that bad?

Thanks in advance

What about spraying the lid (away from any living objects of course) with that Rain-X crap... it dries in place and it doesn't allow droplets to form and is probably easier and less messy than vaseline...
