Hmm, how do you refill the jar? Seems like you'd want to velcro it on or something.

How often do you have to refill the water, as well?

Sounds like an excellent setup, though. Whats the temperature you are acheiving 95% humidity at, too?

Great idea Ripper. I use a similar setup, but I leave the jar (1 pint in this case) standing normally, making sure the air pump hose reaches the bottom. This way there is no chance of leakage. When it is time to add water, simply disconnect the jar input hose and using a 60cc syringe inject my H2O2 and water into the hose. No neet to open the case and expose to contaminates. And like your observation, humidity hovers around 96%, even with filter patches to allow for air exchange. Great post Ripper.

This experiment was done this evening, The 95% humidity was obtained around 75F +/- 2 degrees. The relative humidity in my house is around 30%. I'm not quite sure about how often this would need to be refilled, although the comment about using a 60 CC syringe and just pumping the water through the air hose makes sense to me. This would also prevent unneccesary opening of the chamber. Remember, not only does this method save you cleanup, but it also allows for your perlite to be out of the way, and the hydrogen peroxide in there also helps prevent contams...

For Ripper or anyone else with H202 experience in humidification. What is a good/safe concentration to use? I have seen 30:1 (water to H202) as a ratio, anyone know for sure?

As far as I know about H2O2 in perlite teks, u can't really use too much (correct me if im an idiot :biggrin:). Just that u don't want to waste a lot of it and have to buy another bottle. I never really measured the amount i use, but its sure as hell more than 30:1 and I haven't had any problems with stuff growing in the perlite. I bet the amount i use is kinda overkill, but I don't want to risk it.

Dirtydog, when I refill my perlite/water jar, I usually draw 5cc of H2O2 into my 60cc syringe and then draw 55cc or so of sterile water so that works out to about 12:1 water:H2O2 Even when I finish harvesting my flushes and change my perlite for my next cycle, there is no bad smell to the perlite so that mixture ratio is working for me. Hope this helps a little.

I tend to use up to 4 oz's of H2O2 per ~1/2 gallon of water for perlite humidification of a fruiting terrarium.
H2O2, particularly in a warm environment with ample oxygen, will degrade to water and oxygen over time.
