I run the humidifier "somewhere around six to eight hours a day" via a timer. It only has one setting, which will keep both at around 90-95% humidity.


Hey, anyone ever tried one of these?

yup, that's one of the functions of the one liter bottle. I also run it at the same time as the fluorescent lights, which dry things up a bit. Or maybe just run it during the hotter part of the day.

personally i've had mediocre results with ultrasonic humidification too large of water droplets the perlite is a really good idea go to fanaticus.com and look under the perlite tek says it best. ultrasonics may make you feel like more of a pro but not always the best better if you are going to use ultrasonics to do it in moderation w/ the perlite. imo

I just cut holes in the bottle that are just smaller than the tubing. Then put grommets on the end of the tube and stuck the tube in the hole, added some goop (silicone glue) to ensure a tight fit. This type of fruiting chamber is so easy and cheap! The ultrasonic is the best investment, giving me the perfect humidity, as long as you open the terrarium often for air exchange. This thing has proven to give me great yields.

try the centrifugal model next time instead of the ultrasonic,
smaller droplets, no visible fog but every bit as effective, the machine lasts longer than most ultrasonics do, too.
