My setup, any thoughts?
    #346003 - 06/21/01 02:17 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Attached is a picture of fruiting chamber. Two clear rubbermaids, ultrasonic cool mist humidifier ran 6 times a day for 2 minutes, and a fish tank pump on 24 X 7 providing air exchange.

CRAP, see next post for attachment

Please don't give me the mist and fan method. I work out of town several days a week and that would not work for me.

Thanks

tell ya the truth, its kinda overkill, 1st you don't need the 2nd(*top) container, just place the lid on the 1st one and you'll be fine, its uncommon for cubs to grow too tall using standard cakes. 2nd if your using perlite the the humidifier is useless, one or the other is fine, only reason you might get low humidity reading is because you have too big of a terr. tour better off making more jars and using the containers seperately. And if you humidity is too high you'll get mostly aborts and alot of pins, onces pins for you have to lower the RH.

anyways i'm just giving you my take, if it works for you then great, hope you enjoy this hobby.

My suggestion...

Get rid of the perlite. Like hubert said, both perlite and the cool mist would be overkill. Use the cool mist. The problem with perlite (in your situation) is that there will not be enough air exchange since you stated you are out of town a few days a week.
Put the output tube for the cool-mist near the top of one of your sides of the terrarium. Make a few holes on opposite sides of your terrarium all the way at the bottom. Be sure your exhaust for the cool-mist does not drip into the terrarium. Set the cool mist on a timer for maybe on 6 off 6 on 6 off 6.
That should do it.
