humidity problem
    #3324011 - 11/05/04 12:29 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

i had humidity problems last time i worked with lava rocks in my fruiting chamber. i thought the lava rockes just sucked, but this tiem i'm using perlite, bubble wands, water and a pump to serve as humidity upkeep. Why is my reading still showing like 50% humidity? i tested the readings in the shower and the hygrometer isn't bunk. any help would be so much appreciated sicne this is the first day the casing is in the tupperware.

That shouldn't be a problem, your seal that is. When I was using a PMP i had no problem with humidity, and i didn't Have it sealed. I actually had holes drilled in it for better air exchange. Its hard to say what your problem is, do you only have one airstone in it??? Also remember to put H2O2 in the water to ward off contams.

don't get it, i have the right ratio of water and perlite, 2 wands. maybe the pump isn't stong enough? Maybe the tray is sitting on top and cutting off the air wands' circulation? I really want this to work, and i'm stumped as fuck...any help please

I have 94% humidity with just perlite in my tub and it's a HUGE tub huimdified just by perlite.

I think it's 50 gal.. damn it I always forget to check.

Anyway it's about 2 1/2" long, 1 1/2" wide, and 2 to 2 1/2" deep.

2 inches of perlite and 3/4" water.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
