Fruiting Box/Humidifier Questions
    #482497 - 12/06/01 11:47 PM (15 years, 19 hours ago)

Hi all...I'm new to this board and am currently tending to my first crop of fungus. I've got 8 1/2 pint cakes in a 77qt plastic storage tub connected to an adjustable Ultrasonic Humidifier by a 4" wide piece of aluminum duct. Now my question is, what setting on the humidifier would be ideal for my chamber. There are two adjustable sliders/knobs on it. One for mist & the other for humidity level. I currenlty have the mist knob all the way down with the humidity knob turned up to about 3/4 of the way. When I put the humidity slider below 3/4 no mist comes out and only a faint amount of moist airflow comes thru resulting in little condesation on the walls of the tub. At 3/4 and above I start to get mist out of the thing (The tub gets quickly saturated with mist and condensation forms on all the walls. It doesn't get dripping/rain drop type wet but the mycellium is being bombarded with the ultrasonic mist. Is too much mist no good for my babies?? Should I revert to periodic use? If so, how do I compensate for gas exchange while its off? Any help with this would be very much appreciated.

PS: pics to come soon...

Thats the problem with ultrasonic humidifiers. The mist over mists the terrarium and that results in period use which then results in low air exchange.. If you want to keep your humidifier (because im guessing it costes alot) then hook an air pump up to your terrarium. Or you can just get a cool mist humidifier. They work great for both air exchange and humidifying without the over misting.

Should I just cut a hole in the box and stick the tube coming from the air pump in there or should I get one of those "bubble-stone" things and place it in a cup of water inside the tank?
