Cool Mist Humidifier Q's
    #3873067 - 03/05/05 03:46 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I've heard this many times, that cool mist humidifiers are good for air exchange and that is about it.

But are they better than a 20-60 gal aquarium air pump at air-exchange?

If so, would it be possible with some modifications etc, to hook up a cool mist humidifier to a PMP, and have the air going to bubble wands under the rock and water?

I am just a little indecisive about what sort of growing chamber I want/need. I will be doing casings, and perhaps spawning to worm castings, and I am concerned about contams if I just fan / spray. Therefore I want a good amount of air-exchange etc. without me having to do these things. I have also noticed that the PMP costs about 40+ dollars, but so would a humidifier setup, depending on the brand you get.

Is the PMP the better setup for humidification and air-exchange, seeing as most humidifier users report best results with ultrasonic for humidity and cool mist for air exchange?

i like the idea of a fan attached to my fruiting chamber. i have the incoming air filtered with high quality furnace filter. this solves the air exchange problems. i also use a ultrasonic humidifier on a timer and utilize a drip shield to catch water droplets. it costs a bit more to do this but i find the automation is well worth the exspense.
