    Thanks for the offer!

    I may hit you up after my stuff gets here and I see how little is left! LOL

    Liz: I sure hope I still have the magic to keep these alive after the $$ I've spent in the past couple weeks on this and the incoming plants...

    You are a freaking genius. All this time, I thought I had to have air come straight from the window into the room. Just using that HVAC tubing would probably all but eliminate hot air coming into the room during the day. Especially if the tubing's opening is lower than the window - hot air rises, right? And the room is shaped probably perfectly to do that. I could use one of the windows for light and the other as exhaust/cool intake as needed. I feel bad crowding up your topic, though, so I'll just catch you in chat some time or something.

    Thanks, you're amazing. LOL.

    Thanks Reaper and all!

    It's an easy enough project to do and seems to work pretty good without much fuss once all rigged up which is good for me. Just fill the humidifier every few days and I'm soaking the moss with a pump up garden sprayer once a day to try and get it reestablished in this tank before I start pecking away at it.

    I'm trying to get up the gumption to drill a hole on the top of the humidifier reservoir so I can fill it through a funnel glued on so I won't have to lift the tank up to fill. If it works it'll be awesome but if I crack the tank as I try to drill it I'll have to buy a whole new humidifier. 50/50 chance of success or total disaster! Perhaps if I start with a very small hole and gradually increase it to 1/2" for the funnel...

    Awesome set up!

    Might try a dremel tool or super heat a nail and melt your way through the plastic on the humidifier.

    Any chance of a rough schematic for the whole deal?
    Trying to rebuild. Feel free to PM me with questions.

    Huzzah! Looks great, can't wait to see it grow in.
    As for drilling a hose into your humidifier, make sure that it doesn't need to only have one outlet to keep from spilling. If it works the way mine do, it's like one of those water coolers with the big bottle on top, and the only thing that keeps the water from spilling out continually is that there's no way for air to get in to displace it.

    Awesome setup Swords. Nice to see more and more people in the CP community starting to use the hygrotherm. I have one as well and have been using it for 2 years. It's amazing, and very cheap compared to other environmental control units. I use mine to control the humidity and in the summer i have it hooked up to my AC that i modded and put in my tank. In the winter i just hook it up to a fan and have it blow cold air from my window to the tank. Definitely the best thing I've bought for my setup. Here's a pic of my modded AC in case you're interested in doing the same.
