Cool Mist Humidifer inside PMP?
    #4378039 - 07/07/05 01:06 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Okay, it's been ten days since I put casings into my PMP. For the last three or four days, I've had a Cool Mist humidifier physically inside the PMP and it's created a ton of humidity and condensation inside the chamber and shot the humidity up to around 97% or 98% humidity.

However, it's been ten days and I have no sign of pins. I have a ton of mycelium growth but no pins. Although I am getting impatient, I was fine with waiting confident that pins would come eventually. However, in talking today in the cultivation chat, in between screaming and incoherently yelling about my casings, I was told that having a cool mist humidifier inside of the PMP can actually hurt or take out the air inside the PMP and mess up the casings.

I immediately took the cool mist out but I'm wondering if I did any damage to the casings.

I need these damn things to pin... haha

Any advice or info would be appreciated :smile:

My god... it's full of stars...

That's overkill man. Remove the coolmist and let the PMP do it's thing. Give it time, they'll pin. Not all grows are going to pin the first week they're in the PMP. The casings are probably fine, just give it time.

The cool mist being in the chamber will do you no good. The point of the cool mist is to hook it up from outside the chamber and pump in fresh air, not to use it for humidity. Thats what ultrasonic foggers are for (search ebay, or look in pet/reptile stores). High humidity is less important then fresh air though. If you have an actual PMP, with an airpump attached, just leave it as is...works fine by itself.
