Importance of bubble stone?
    #640610 - 05/22/02 04:03 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I understand fully what a bubble stone does, but I wonder if it is needed to add just a little humidity. If one were to use perlite, and make a bubble stone type humidity setup, minus the bubble stone, would the rather large bubbles created by air hose be enough to add any signifigant amount of humidity? I'm not talking about a 40% humidity boost, just something along the lines of 10-15%. Any useful information is eagerly awaited.

more bubbles = more humidification. try it without the stone first, if you're having problems keeping 100% humidity,t hen try the stone.

best of luck.

You could probably achieve the same result as a bubble stone by putting about 3 inches of pearlite in the bottom of the bottle, and running the air tube all the way to the bottom. If the pearlite is too light, and blows around alot, you might be able to weigh it down with some gravel on top of the pearlite.

Just a guess.
