my PMP
    #4367445 - 07/03/05 10:44 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

went to wal-mart and got two 90 quart bins filled the bottom with 3" of L.E.C.A put 8-1/4" holes in the lids but they let out too much air so i covered them with silicone for humidity i have two reptile humidifiers i got at peto hooked them up to general hydroponics air pump that puts out 3psi or 2500 cc/min they should keep the humidity around 90% and provide fresh air so that i don't need to fan out the tubs as much ill get
some pics of it tomorrow

yea i know they aren't good for air exchange but I'm going to fan out the tubs about 4 times per day so they just need to produce humidity

i used to fan once when i woke up once when i got home from work and once before bed and it went flawless and is a real easy schedule to follow.

yea its easy to fan, the tubs have a problem tho one has a humidity of 95% and the other has a humidity of around 85-86% so how could i go about rising it?

wht kinda hygrometer do you have? if its cheap it could just be lying to you. one of the easiest ways would be to just spray when you fan.

its digital but iv just got it in there to see the humidity the ones that will be in there are cheep but are accurate and I'm going to mist it when i fan was going to do that anyway but good news is that after i coverd up the holes the humidity went up to 90% and just so you know iv got 20 mycobags i plan on cuting them open just above the grain and puting 10 in each tub

how do you know they are accurate? did you test them? but either way your good if you plan on spraying.

UPDATE [Re: BLAST_420]
    #4373029 - 07/05/05 07:29 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

got a new hygrometer and just filled my tropic-airs up they where 1/2 way full of water and that made the humidity go down so i put 1 quart of water in the bottom of the PMP and filled the tropic-airs to the top i hope adding water to my PMP will help rise the humidity there is about 1" of rocks between the cakes and the water
