Humidity and temp?Martha stewart set up
    #3175503 - 09/24/04 04:44 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Homie has a new set up similiar to a martha stewart closet but it is a rubbermaid brand closet. It has a cool mist and an ultra sonic doing the air exchange and humidity. Both run 24/7, RH is at 95%. Their is a lot of water droplets on the cassings, shelvings and containers.
The temp in the room is 78 degrees and the temp in the closet is 66 give or take a few degrees. He put a heater next to the cool mist and ultra sonic but it has made no differnce.

Questions
1)Is the water droplets going to become a problem when myc. shows and pins start to develop? And if so what suggestioons do you guys suggest to stop or prevent this.

2) I know 66 degrees is a little to cold for fruiting, so what are your suggestions to raise the temp in the closet?

I have done searches but am having trouble locating the answers to my homies specific problems. I am sure it will take a while to callibrate the entire set up but I am looking for some one to send my homie in the right direction.

Thanks

1. yes
2.kinda
2.b. Sounds like you got a brand new casing inthere that hasn't incubated. incubate it at 80-85deg..
is this piece of plastic crap sittng in the middle of the room or in another closet, basement, attic or what.
Maybe you just need to turn the ambient heat up (house therm) to get the "closet" warmer.
However, I don't use that setup so I am just imagining (it to rickety for my liking)
adios

Homie has it set up in his unfinished basement. Used construction plastic to close out the room etc.

U think he should incubate the casing for longer? He has some myc. growth on the casing but is worried bout overlay.

you said it's in your unfinished basement. sounds a little unsafe to me. but if you're not getting contamed, then damn.

uh..

you need to heat INSIDE the closet thing. so how do you get light? you could fashion a light in there that could double as a heat source. just an idea.

My homie has never had a problem with contams, runs a hepa 24/7 plus its been secluded by the plasic, anyways the ambient room temp is 76 to 78.

I think the light idea is really good, homies got some power compact lighting he rig up.

But what about the water droplets?

Homie understands but is having a hard time maintaining his RH. It drops really fast do to the dry climate.

Homie thinks the water droplets r do to the RH being at or around 95%. Not from the ultra sonic, but he might be wrong.

His setup is using pvc to carry the air from the ultra sonic to the closet. What if he ran pvc inside the closet and put small holes around the pvc to let the moist air out all around the closet. Does that make sense?

Any input is much appreciated.

It is going to take a lot of playing around to get it right I think.

Thanks rezzan1

Domey
Since the cool mist is for exchanging air then the humidity is probably droping becuase he is runing it all the time. Is that correct?

So if he were to run the ulta sonic for 1/2 an hour and the cool mist for 1/2 and hour or something similiar it could fix the problem. Thats if my previous statement is true.
