COOL MIST ON for 24 HOURS???
    #958320 - 10/14/02 12:06 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hello-

I don't like to fan because I am way too busy. My dog wants to know if you can run a cool mist humidifier all day/all week? He's using perilite and a cool mist attachment. One thing he noticed was that when the cool mist wasn't on, there would be little water droplets on the sides of the terrarium, it was foggy. Also when the thing wasn't on the humidity was at 95%. With the cool mist running for 12 hours the humidity dropped down to 85-90% and there were no water droplets. I believe this is due to the moving air. Not sure though. Help my dog out.

Tell your dog to put his humidifier on a timer. He will have to experiment with the on/off durations to find the optimum settings.  :smile:

Timer 4 off, 4 on & see how it is. Otherwise you will be a water packing SOB, filling that thing. :grin:

A humidifier and perlite is overkill. Ditch the perlite or the humidifier depending on your fruiting chamber

my pet trouser snake uses an ultrasonic humidifer with perlite. on/off every 2 hrs for air exchange and to recharge the humidity in the air. he doesnt' get condensation on the cakes, only on the sides. humidity is very high and flushes seem to be doing ok.

when he used a cool mist last year, the cool mist on 24/7 seemed to actually dry things out and lower the humidity, so he just used perlite and got great results.

he uses a humidifier because he's not around his apartment enough to actually fan and spray 2-3 times a day.

I thought one of the big selling points of Cool Mist vs. Ultrasonic was that the Cool Mists actually provided air exchange. What brand/model was this?

They both will give an air exchange, the cool mist just does it faster.

Ive got the same kind of setup going... cuz im a lazy bitch and dont like to fan....
im still screwin around with my settings, tho i think i have it right....
1st off, hygrometers blow, at least the ones from radiocrack and wall-fart do......
mine were totally unreliable, so now i just listen to the shrooms.....

right now i have my setup on a 12 on 12 off cycle... every 2 hours for 20 min
(this is powering 2 big ass rubbermaid bins)

im beginning to think this is too much....
the cake that was by the wall directly opposite the output tube was all bruised and fuxxored up... i think the air was drying it out.....
but the cakes by the wall next to the tube are doing fuckin awesome....

i think im going to cut the timer back to 10 min on....
10 min should be enuff time to fill the 2 tubs with fresh air......
10min X 12 times in 24 hours is alot......

20 min, wtf was i thinking lol!
im gonna go change my timer right now...!
:ooo:
