Three little questions and one big question. Please help.

Okay this has probably been asked before but going through several search pages, I couldn't find what I was looking for. So here's my questions.

I have a portable martha, I've put a cool mist humidifer physically in the Martha and I seem to have 88-95% humidity in there. So do I need to get a ultrasonic humidifer and get a bunch of goofy hosing and fittings? I think if I take the vinyl bottom out that should get rid of CO2 and provide fresh air. I don't know, you're thoughts?

Also, condensation builds up on the walls of the martha, is that good or bad?

Thanks in advance.  :thumbup:

Wow that high humidity with just coolmist? You may not need an ultrasonic if you have that much humidity.

It's good to have a few gaps or holes in the bottom to let the CO2 escape, but the coolmist should be providing plenty of air exchange.

Thanks Kronny :smile:

Yeah the digital hygrometer is reading 89% and the analog is reading somewhere around 93% to 95% and there's a lot of condensation on the walls.

I'm nervous about not screwing around with hoses or using a ultrasonic humidifer since it seems those are the two golden standards but it seems as if I've achieved optimal grow conditions without them.

More questions

1. Does anyone know of a tek somewhere online that talks about the importance of air exchange and how it should go about being achieved.

2. So I should expect to have the casing in the incubator for two to seven days, (until I see pins right?)

3. How long should I wait to expect the first flush after putting the casing in the martha?

Thank you :cool:

EDIT
Okay so checking on my martha, everything is wet with condensation and little droplets of water... I'm assuming that's not a good thing. So do I need to try to do the hose thing? Thanks.
