BIG PROBLEM, HELP PLEASE!!!
    #551616 - 02/14/02 07:06 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

About a week ago I put a space heater in my room to raise temps. At this time conditions were very humid and temps were around 72. I had a air pump connected to a bubble stone in a peroxide jar which pumped that air into the terrarium. After about a week all the condensation drops on my plexiglass window disappeared and the inside walls are bone dry now. I just put in a bunch of perlite and water and I even tried adding another bubbler jar pumping into the terrarium and it's still dry, even after I've turned off the heat. Can someone please help me figure out what is wrong. I have racked my brain and cannot figure it out. This is "the day the humidity died!!!" Thanks everyone I appreciate it!!!

maybe your humidity sensor is broken...you said you turned off the heat right?

Yeah I turned off the heat, and that was my first thought is that they are broken, but that obviously isn't the case because the condensation on the plexiglass is just gone and the inside walls are bone dry. This tells me it's not humid anymore. It's almost as if the terrarium has developed a tolerance to humidity and is fighting it off, Someone please help!!!

72?F is optimum for the fruiting. Why are you trying to rise the temperature?
Stop.

Ok, new developments. I just took the tube running into my terrarium and covered it up w. my finger for a few seconds. This use to cause air pressure buildup and you could tell when u let go cuz it would cause a short burst of air. Well I just did it and no burst of air. The pump can't be the problem cuz the jar is bubbling. The loss of air occured somewhere between the jar and the hole where the tube to the terrarium goes out of. So I replaced it w. a diff. pump box setup and now the burst of air is there so maybe this will help. Any suggestions? I think I will just go w. a cool mist humidifer in the future.
