I have a real simple one that works pretty good for me.

I just got a medium size rubbermaid container (approx.
1' X 1' X 2' ) and use perlite humidification. Meaning I cover the bottom w/ about 1-2" of perlite and add about 1/2" of water.

To air it out I have a fish tank air pump that goes directly into the rubbermaid.-- I melted a small hole (about 3" from the bottom) in the rubbermaid w/ lighter and poked through w/ a pen. Then I put the tubing from the pump through and sealed around the hole w/ caulk.

Put the pump on a timer and let go.

Do you have the fish tank pump tubing going into the water under you perlite or just sitting on top blowing air?

I heard this one guy uses a cooler. He cut a 2x4x12 inch strip outa the top and put plexi glass over it and a florecent for his light, inside he uses perlite for humidity and a fish tank heater, being a cooler you can adjust the temp anywhere from 65-100 and not worry about out side temps. he also uses a fish tank pump but he puts two holes in, one near the top and the other as close to the top of the perlite as possible. put the hose in the top and the c02 flows out the bottom hole, like your previous post says if the humidity is too low stick it in the bottom hole and in the perlite, (note you have to fan this way). There it is a set up for all 3 things you need.

mrshrums- actually I do have my bubbler go through a plastic gatorade bottle. I put a tube going into the bottom of the bottle through hole. the hole is sealed. I then have a separate tube, sealed, coming out of the top and then into my terrarium. I really don't think I would have to bubble through though, I think the perlite does a pretty good job of humididfication.

JayBin- you can use the Rubbermaid w/ perlite and simply take the lid off 3-4 times a day and fan w/ the lid itself. This is sufficient, but I would recommend getting a bubbler (like $7) and a muli-time setting timer (I think it was $15). It works real good and you can basically forget about it until harvest. I have it set for about 6 X a day for 15 min. (probably a little overkill, but my humidity stays high enough, so I figure the more fresh air the better)

matt_420_ - You could put about as many cakes and/or casings you want as long as there is enough room. With the timer on the pump, I can basically get as much air in it as I want. Turning it on all the time would be too much even if the whole bottom is filled.
