cracked caps

all the caps that are opening seem to be cracking around the edges - is this lack of moisture?

hmmmm - strange - humidity reads 100% and I've had complete success on previous grows with the same setup....

That really is strange.

What kind of hygrometer do you have? Digital, i bet. Even the best hygrometers mess up after extended periods of high humidity.

I believe a coolmist gives more airflow than humidity in comparison to an ultrasonic... so that could be the case. Someone, please correct me if i'm wrong here.

your right zero thats why alot run both on the setups the run the coolmist all the time and then run the ultrasonic a few minutes every hour or so.

right zero, but wrong zero. A cool mist provides great humidity. The reason people use both humidifiers is because they're using large setups such as martha and grow chambers. A cool mist alone on a small chamber will provide more than enough O2 and humidity. I believe it's been said a cool mist alone will humidify a martha to 80%.

yeh, it's a small setup, and like I said, it's worked great in the past...I changed the setting and have it running on high to see if that would help. Do you think that not enough misting might have caused this?...I figured since it's the first flash, moisture wouldn't be much of a problem...
