? About humidity in my chamber
    #3949156 - 03/21/05 03:58 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Heres an overview of what I have
3/4 in thick styrofoam cooler
I cut out a square on top and glued a piece of glass on using aquarium glue
I put 1 in of pearlite on the bottom with 1/2 in of water
I can only get 70%rh with this and my temp is 74
If I hook up my ultrasonic and run it for 15 mins I bring it up to 85% then I cut off humidifier and the humidity climbs to 92% and stays that way for about 8-9 hours
Why wont just the pearlite work?

If you put your head to the grass, you can hear it growing

your temp is too low to make perlite work effectively look into getting an aquarium heater and putting it in a jar(or whatever) of water inside your setup.

That should bring the temp up enough to make the perlite give 95-100% humidity.

Also make sure your top is sealed and your not losing humidity that way.
