just an airstone and a jar of water? (instead of perlite)
    #4665983 - 09/15/05 06:05 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I am trying to be as resourceful as possible. How about, instead of perlite, I put an air stone submerged in a quart jar with water for humidity, instead of laying the bottom with perlite.

Does this have the same effect? Pros/cons?

Thanks!

Not even close bro! The key here is surface area :wink:

I also use both, however you can do what you're doing now, if its not humid enough just use a container exopsing more surface area of water. Maybe put some h2o2 in there to keep things clean. Also if u have an adjustable air pump you can control rh with how hard it pumps.
