humidification question.
    #3908733 - 03/12/05 08:37 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

hello, I'm going to be going away from home for awhile and need a way for my fruiting chamber to get some air exchange that wont compromise the humidity levels.

I was wanting to try the perlite for the main supply of humidity in the fruiting chamber but I was initially was going to be trying the humidifier with condensing chambers. since I'm going to be gone i decided to switch but i still have the condensing chambers.



i was wondering if there was some way I could turn them into humidification chambers by filling them with wet perlite just like in the fruiting chamber and have a fan blow a slow, steady, stream of naturally humid air into the chamber via the chambers.

Please give some feed back of if this would or wouldn't work or some improvements I could make to it. thanks

not good, get a ultrasonic and put it on a timer depending on the size of your fruiting chamber, run it 15min every 2 hours and this will get you your humidity and constantly elimanate co2, i myself drilled a half inch hole at the bottom ,so co2 and water could escape, i also ran it thru a 2 litter bottle to let the moisture condense a little before it gets to the chamber this works for me some might disagree

A warmmist humidifier is not easy to integrate into this terrarium setup. First, the vapor it emits is too hot and will kill the fungus. The second reason is they typically run full blast. They do not have a control to throttle them way back like the ultra sonic humidifiers do.

i looked for about an hour and couldnt find one here. i will try again, and no the mist isnt to hot, the air comming into the chamber from the condensing chambers is 69 degrees at the most, i was actualy trying to figure out how to raise the temp in the chamber if i need to. and it has setting's, i keep it on the lowest one which works fine by what i could tell.

how long did you let it stablelize because if im not mistaken they get hotter as they go along but there is alot of them so if it dosent get that hot do it the way i said earlier
