those ultrasonics usually wet a container within 10 seconds of operation. If thats the case with your setup, then no, thats not enough air exchange.

He mentioned nothing of an ultrasonic.

Yes a Kaz COOL MIST will provide you with adequite air exchange if you run it 24/7.

but it will NOT provide the proper humidity ime, though some may say they can get there without an ultrasonic... and i speak of larger enclosures like home-made closets or martha's

The unit will be on constantly, Marv.

I'm wondering if it will be enough when all 4 tiers are occupied by fairly large casings...

I just got a new Kaz. It appears to keep humidity at an acceptable level. However, the last mister i used seemed to be a little bit more efficient, so i was able to add some extra air exchange with a computer fan.

Maybe what i will do is use a smaller computer fan and try and run it on a lower voltage...

i'm thinking, w/ my martha, the coolmist def. keeps the air fresh, but i had to turn my ultra from the lowest setting to the highest setting when i put only 2 12sqin casings on the top shelf

those things suck humidity out the air like a mofo

Just check out the double tub tek in the section of the cultivatin archive. It's by eatyualive and it makes any other type of air exchange obsolete unless you like to complicate things. If you want to rig up computer fans and cool mist humidifiers that will work too, but the double tub tek only requires two tupperware containers and polyfill. With no fanning.

my mistake, i thought "coolmist" refferd to an ultrasonic, i believe my ultra was called a coolmister or something.
