Ok... well the first thing is are you trying to humidify the whole closet?
I would suggest you seal the shelves in plastic somehow...at least somewhat air tight and run the humidifiers into there.
You might have problems with humdifiying the whole closet..such as wood..mildew..etc... and keeping the humidity up..
You should provide a semi-sealed environment for the casings


2. is this too much or too little humidity input given the total area and amount of output?

Two humidifiers should be more than enough
One should suffice for three shelves..

3. does anyone have any experience dampening the noise these things make...the whole closet practially rattles! (don't want to make the upstairs neighbors too curious)

Duct tape the lid to the body

4. should he run these things for a couple of hours without the tubs in there to boost the humidity up to an acceptable level, then replace the bins and set the timer on a maintenance schedule?


Huh? If you run the humidifier 24/7 it should keep humidity and air exchange up, if... the casings are in a sealed environment. You are probably losing so much humidity through the door of the closet.

5. given the somewhat skeletal information provided above, can anyone reccommend ways to improve the likelyhood of a successful transition to the larger space. note, he is already utilizing perlite filled bins and cased substrate, each should be contributing, however slightly, to the overall humidity in each of the 3 seperate chambers.

Hmm... the perlite bins are not necessary if you have the casings in a sealed environment..the humidifiers will provide all the gas exchange and humidity you need.

I am a bit confused as to how you have your setup. I am under the impression you have three shelves in the closet, with a sheet of plastic hanging over the front? Unless the rest is sealed, all your humdity is escaping from the shelves and into the closet and out of the crack in the door.

Hey man, i have a large closet myself. I have a 2x4x6 wooden (coated in waterproof floor paint and calked) closet. it has a single coolmist in the bottom of it, and it works fine. i use rye/casings so the casings provide some moisture as well.
I dont like the idea of having the humidiifer piped into the terrarium, but thats my personal opinion. i have the fool mist in the bottom. also, for air exchange, i use a fish tank bubbler in the bottom and a 99.97% filter in the top. works well man... very well.

The Racoon tells me you should go here: http://peterdilley.com/

Then to the mushroom section, then to the fruit chamber section. You will find some answers there.

Closet space usualy has thin coat water based painted gypsum sheetrock walls & ceiling. Plus wood door & floor. All of which absorb water. Suggest you thumbtack, staple or tape all surfaces with thin plastic like painters drop cloth. It's way cheap. That will help hold in & maintain the humidity you create.

Other than a humr, (no getting around the hum - w/ a humr) a five gallon bucket full of peroxide treated water with large watt fish tank heater & air stone driven by a small pump placed in a closet should give you some fair hi humidity & keep it warm. Although, same goes for an air pump, they hum & vibrate also. You can dampen the vibation easy, but not the hum.

Six Tango - out
