    dew tank issue..

    Slight problem.. I don't have A/C in the house and temps are creepin' into the mid-90's. The neps are doing great in the grow box, and I have computer fans going in my Ceph tank. But I don't have anything for my dew tank and my dews are drying up and starting to die. Any suggestions?

    That's strange. All my dews (besides the Queenslanders) are grown outside with 90F+ temps. Why not hook up one of the ceph fans onto the dew tank, or place the dews with the cephs?

    I'd suggest getting an attic fan, but that doesn't really help if the temp outside is mid 90s... Why does your house get hotter than the outside air? I wouldn't think most dews would have a problem in that temperature, temperates and tropicals would have to experience high temperatures if it's this hot in a temperate zone.

    I don't have a clue why it's hotter inside than it is outside. I've got all the windows open and an industrial size fan going. This fan about knocks me off my feet..
    I just checked on the dews and the temp is 76degF and 65% humidity.. And all the dews are covered with dew, the pings are covered with.. dew, and everything looks great. But it all drys up during the day. That's not normal is it?

    I only have 1 cord that both fans plug in to. And the tanks are too far apart to reach a fan for each. So the cephs won that war.. And I already thought of moving the dews. But the reason I have a tank for each is because I have so many of each that they need their own tanks.

    Fans or A/C can really suck the humidity out of the air...

    What species are we talking here? They may just be going dormant.

    would say your first problem is your growing them in a tank......only a couple dews benefit from that kind of growing......grow them in an open tray in good light and get them out of the tank.....most dews dont give a rip about humidity, they need alot of light and good air circulation....i have really low humidity and the only dew i grow in a tank is prolifera.....
