Perlite Humidification
    #570252 - 03/05/02 06:03 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Greetings,
I was wondering what the general consensus is surrouding humidification methods. A friend of mine is growing some mushrooms and he is wondering what method is better, Ultrasonic or Perlite? He is conscerned that the Perlite method seems much more time consuming and the Ultrasonic method seems more automated? What does everyone think? WHich would be the best method?

Since your friend is a newbie, he should stick to the prlite humidification...

you can hook up an aquarium air pump to either and make them both fully automated. The perlite must be fanned, and the ultrasonic only provides good air exchange when it is on. You can't leave it on all the time or you will have water beading up everywhere. I'd go for ultrasonic and an airpump just because it's easier to control humidity levels with it. I think there is a tek out there that involves a cool mist humidifier and some hose where you can leave it on all the time providing great air exchange and somehow the water doesn't bead up everywhere. I believe it's by shroom god, but I read it a long time ago and could be wrong.
