    Ultrasonic Humidifier VS. Heater.

    Hi everyone i have a ultrasonic humidifier and a heater. Here is a link to the humidifier. http://www.kaz.com/kaz/humidifiers/p...idifier-v4500/
    Here is a link to the heater. http://www.amazon.com/Patton-PUH680-...6239560&sr=8-4
    So i wanted to know if i should leave the heater on during the day and the humidifier during night or the opposite of that or both day or night and i keep the humidifier on high and the amount of humidity half way. I keep the heater around 72 Degrees F. right now i have the heater going during the day at the degree i just told you i kept it on and the humidifier going during the night with it on high and and the amount of humidity on half way. SO WHICH WAY SHOULD I DO IT AND ARE THE SETTINGS/SETUP I HAVE RIGHT NOW OK? For a Cobra Plant at Lowe's, VFT, pitcher plant seedlings, D. adelea, Nepenthes ventricosa, D. rotundifolia, D. binata, D. capillaris "Long Arm", D. filiformis, D. filiformis "All red" VAR. SO IS EVERYTHING OK AND WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT THE HUMIDIFIER AND THE HEATER THANKS COMETS/OPIONS WELCOME AS ALWAYS THANKS!

    Oh yeah and i forgot the temp. at night when i don't have the heater on then it drops down to 58-60 Degrees F. (kind of cool that the cobra needs just about the requirments that my setup has)

    I prefer space heaters that have digital thermostats. I like to know what temp it's heating to, what temp it is, and the difference between the two.
    Just FYI.. when using a space heater and humidifier, your going to want to use a seperate fan to circulate the air. AND, plan ahead for water build up. All that water from the humidifier has to end up somewhere.
