    Looks like we're all on the same page then.. As of now I'm only "fogging" the area in the morning for a nice cool fog, letting the plants bask in the light during the day, then fogging up the area once more in the evening. The GH is all AC controlled, but it only cools to 62*. The mist helps bring it down to the 58* range.
    I guess I'll continue with this method for a little while to see how everyone reacts. So far it's looking promising. My pissy moody burb x eddy (which is yet to pitcher for me) has already stuck it's growth point into the air and started unfurling a new leaf.
    Fans are already running.. inside the area, and out.

    To answer the one question, I think it's good to fog only twice a day...otherwise, you'll get fungal issues from constant wetness.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    So.. This is the shizzy.

    I keep the area sealed from 11pm-noon (9am-midnight light cycle), allowing it to fog up for an hour before the lights go out, and 3 hours after they come on. Humidity is at 90% during that time. Around noon I open it up (until 11pm) to allow better air circulation. At which time the humidity drops to 82%+. Temps are staying around 75*F during the day, and 58*F at night.

    Also.. I love this.. The frame is the perfect height for me to be able to get my cephs and helis right up to the lights. Since the enclosure is open during the day, I just simply move the fog tube from there, to up above where the light lovers are. There is a fan blowing right on them to keep them from over heating, and to keep the fog from hitting the lights. So far.. so good.. All of the cephs responded instantly to the increase in light. The stats up there are: 80% humidity & 82*F. Not too shabby..









    Purple & Red clones got tons of color after just a few hours..





    And since everyone was moved up to the lights, I was able to change ceph towers into TUBER TOWERS!!

    That would be the giant 8 bulb T5HO fixture that's hanging 6 inches above them.
