Terrarrium Air Circulation
    #3196766 - 09/29/04 07:59 PM (13 years, 24 days ago)

Well, I'm setting up a terrarium now. I"ve got a tub about 2x2x2 that I'm putting perlite in the bottom of. I was planning on doing that and then spraying down the sides of it with water to keep it extremely humid, and then putting my casings in there. However, I'm trying to figure out the best way for circulation. I was reading a tek earlier that said to put an air pump inside a tupperware container and then put holes in the top and cover the holes with a filter, and then just pump it through like that. I was then talking to a friend and he said to put a little extra water in there with the perlite and pump the air into the terrarrium through the water. I was just wondering, how do most of you guys have your air circulation setup?

I was actually originally going to do that, but I don't have any hydroponic stores in the area. I was also looking around online, and I couldn't find any airstones larger than 12 inches, and I'm needing something around 20. the bass is 23.8 inches by 15.9 inches, so 10 won't cut it. Other than that small problem and finding hydroton/geo-lite for a decent price (shipping hydroton is a killer and geo-lite is near unfindable), I'd be all for the PMP.

Excuse me guys, but where can you purchase Geolite? Can you order it online?

Edit: I found some Hydroton on a website. It's about $18.00 for 10lbs. of the stuff and it says it is reusable.

Alright, I just called over to walmart and they have an 18 inch Bubble Curtain for what SOUNDED like 4.17. I'm not positive, but thats what he said. He said he didn't have any bubble bars, but that the bubble curtain is nearly exactly the same. I might just go over there sometime this weekend and check it out.

EDIT: Also, just wondering, how much hydroton woudl you guys think necessarry to fill a 2ft by 2ft tub about 4-5 inches up? I dunno if you guys would know, it's just hard to guess how much I'd need, and it's a big expensive to not get the right amount.

This wasn't a question for you bro :tongue: They both have their pro's and con's BTW. But thanks for the answer pshawny. I do prefer hydroton but perlite will work for those who can get only perlite :wink:

I have much more Hydroton than I do perlite. IME Perlite has a much better wicking action but in the PMP wicking action isn't as important IMO. I know people that have used both and I just like the way hydroton looks also. My next grow may very well include a PMP or two maybe one modded and one Magash style! :wink: GL guys

perlite is cheap and works great!
use 2 12" stones if thats all you can get...
make sure to only fill your pmp halfway up the perlite or less for max humidity :thumbup:

I was only planning on filling up like 2 inches, maybe 3-4 depending on how much my perlite allows. I'm just hoping that perlite lasts awhile as it's decently expensive. Also, do you think it would matter if I used those bubble curtains instead? They're rather cheap, and it's either that or paying 7.95*2 plus shipping to order online, and have to wait until they arrived.
