Cool Mist
    #3171795 - 09/23/04 09:54 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I was wondering about this after reading all about the cool mist and using it in prior pf tek grows. I ran straight from the cool mist to the terrarium with about 1 ft of hose when I did it. I let it run to fill the terrarium with mist after fanning then let perlite keep the humidity up. Would it be too much if you left it run nonstop?

I think so yes, since perlite by itself is already providing the needed humidity. The cool mist humidifier is mainly there for air exchange.

Is there really such a thing as too much humidity? I mean, I never had a problem with it but I never went this far. Wouldn't you want 100%?

Too much will condense on the shrooms and start premature decomposition and possible contamming.

My homie
is having a hard time keeping the humidity up in his closet. he is running a cool mist and a ulta sonic 24/7. When they are in use the RH is %90 or above when off it drops fairly quickly.

I think it might be a little to humidity at 100% and you would have to much mositure in your terrarium.

But I was under the impession that a cool mist would lower or not matter very much in bringing the RH up. It is there mostly for air exchange.

Perhaps up your ultrasonic time. I run a large closet and have a cool mist (gets it into the 90's) and an ultrasonic that comes on every half an hour for an hour then off for half an hour. There is a fan sitting next to the ulrasonic blowing 24/7 along with the fan on the cool mist. When the mist kicks on the blows it all around the closet. Stays above 90% all the time, usually around 95-97%. I like it for casings and havnt had a problem. I mist occasionally with a hand mister too...

If I were you I'd scrap the perilite and just use a cool mist for casings. It will keep the humidity of a small martha type closet high enough along with hand mistings. Thats what I used to run..
