Air exchange for martha setup
    #4321523 - 06/21/05 06:45 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

i got the 3foot martha and 6stackable shelves, all at kmart.  nice buy.  i think marthsterwart keeps them in business  :tongue:

i'm wondering the best method for air exchange inside the closet would be?  like i had stated, i was going to try and put a fan and humidifier on the bottom shelf, let the atmosphere work out, but then i thought it would be better to put it on top?  do i need a fan or outside air circulator besides the humidifier?

i saw people who had cut holes in the back and hooked pvc pipe up to their ultrasonic and coolmist so it blasted both into the chamber.  is this necessary?  wouldn't a fan blowing inside the greenhouse have the same effect really?  and couldn't i plug in the humidifier for 3-6 hours each day?  that would alleviate the misting, correct?

just looking for input on the best way to setup the martha closet, air exchange being my main concern...

Where is the fresh air coming from ? A fan is just going to circulate the air in your Martha, not really bring in any fresh air to replace the CO2 build up.

i was reading this, i understand a little better now...

what exactly does the ultrasonic do? i always thought it was one of those machines that move water back and forth to polish rocks or smooth metal objects, lol. how does this help with air exchange? i'm just a bit confused on hooking everything up.

so i'd have a hose from the coolmist and ultrasonic both coming into the top of the greenhouse, ok. what about water build up? wouldn't water just sit on the casings?

had stated the coolmist alone can do humidity and air circulation. maybe i'll just try that, hook a hose into the greenhosue from the coolmist. as long as the rh stays around 80-90%, right? how can i tell if the coolmist isn't doing a justifiable job for the air circulation?

Run the coolmist in thru the top. The fresh air will flow thru and the CO2 will go out the bottom. I'm just running a coolmist now 24/7 and maintaining around 91% humidity. A good hygrometer will tell you if it's working or not.
