questions on my newly set up martha
    #4560284 - 08/20/05 08:44 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I just rigged up a martha setup and was running it through its paces while it was empty (i just spawned my casings today)

i rigged up a coolmist and i was wondering what the proper RH is for a martha setup. mine's at 90% with it going full blast all the time is this too high?

also, water accumulates on the bottom which could lead to contams if left alone. what can i do to get rid of it without it draining onto my floor?

and lastly, its god awful hot and my room isnt ac-ed. my thermometer in the martha said it was at 88.2 degF. i figure this is too hot for caseings. is there anything i can do to bring the temperature down? what about putting ice in my coolmist to make the mist temperature cooler? (the manual says your water shouldnt be "too hot" or "too cold" but who pays attention to manuals anyway - its not like i'm using it for its intended purpose anyway)

thanks guys

something for the standing water, you could use a turkey baseter to suck up the water by hand

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

i dont think icepacks would make much difference in a big huge ass closet type growspace - unless it was insulated somehow, but i dont think thats gonna happen

Yhis is an easy one,..go to Ace Hardware, or Home Depot. Pick up a drain spiket, with a open/close valve. Install this in the botton corner, or angle, seal the threads with silicone, and place a bucket underneath for save measures.
