Humidifier or Air wands?
    #3741992 - 02/06/05 08:35 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hello, if I choose to use an air humidifier in my fruiting chamber, do I still need a bubblewand and perlite/water mix in the bottom? Or just dry perlite? I have a 64 quart sterilite container to put this in. What would be the ideal medium for 6 pf tek cakes of b+ strain.

Thanks!

Any help? Does a humidifier replace the humidity provided by perlite/air stones?

So what do I use as my ground substrate if I am using a humidifier? As in, what do I place the cakes on?

Well, you shouldn't place the cakes directly on the perlite anyways [as far as I know]. I'd just get a rack that sits an inch or so above the bottom of the container.

the humidifier replaces the perlite for humidity, the air wands are for fresh air exchange,
as long as the humidifier is not inside your chamber it may also give you fresh air exchange (is it a coolmist or ultrasonic humidifier?)
as far as the bottom, i dont think you need anything on the bottom
just set your cakes on lids or something or case those cakes up
i may be wrong but this is my opinion

It is an ultra sonic humidifier. I would like to make this a really nice fruiting chamber, so any suggestions?

Would you recommend the airstone/perlite or the ultrasonic humidifier?

I use neither of them. I use airpump/bubblewand with geolite in a PMP. Maybe the fancy ultrasonic is better, sorry but I dont know!

Look at the post and search the forums for "martha" It's IMO the best fruiting setup you can build for the money.

I dont need it, my PMP and bulk tubs are just fine.
