cool mist/perlite set up
    #3245970 - 10/12/04 02:16 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I couldn't find the original thread I was posting on, but here's the update on terrarium with perlite and cool mist hooked up to the bottom.

RH is sitting at 95% and the perlite is fairly damp everywhere(I only 1" perlite in there), but no noticeable puddles on the bottom. There is a large amount of air exchange though when it's opened.

I'm was going to push the connecting hose up a bit, but the perlite seems to be getting enough water to work with. But I am going to try a smaller hose to reduce the air flow a bit to allow time for perlite to work a bit more effectively. See if I can get it up to 99%... Out to the shop for me. Wish me luck.

just an update for those who care...

The thinner tubing I got backed up the humidifier so much, that it started to drip on to the floor. So I went out and got a larger one and replace it with 15mmOD 13mm ID. But I lengthen he hose to 4ft. Then I pushed the hose in a bit more and took some perlite out. It's up at 99% now. I've hooked up another rubbermaid to it. I'm pretty sure it'll run both. I'll post an update.

Mix. I'm doing about 20 cakes and 10 jars worth of casing. I birthed my jars earlier(5 GT jars) and put them on a casing. I'll have to birth 15 jars sometime this week(burma). I wasn't going to case until I had some more experiences, but I had so much time to read and prepare. I have 4 -45L Terrariums now. 2 are running classic PMP with corals, 1 single wanded PMP with corals then there's my perlited PMP I'm using to experiment. And 2 that are going to be using the humidifier. Geez. How did I end up with all these?

Anyways, I'm using 2 Terrariums with GT. I can fit some more cakes in there. I was going to use the 2 single wands for casing. Figure it'd give me a chance to learn to fan and mist. And the 2 now... It's really just an experiment... Maybe i should start grains.

What do you think?
