    Well the Tropic aire humidifier did nothing for me and i try using it over 3 times and other's say its not very good as well so im going to leave it at that because Pft does sell this unit and im not saying its not worth a try but just letting this topic know its not very effective. Good luck everyone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] E.C

    well my tank is only an 18 gallon cube so maybe its worth a try. Or maybe I'll just make a replica of one and see how that compares to the glass of water....

    well, i could get all technical on you and say that "bonsai" is a literal japanese word meaning (roughly) "tree in a pot" and it is not actually a 'type" of plant, but i know what you mean =)

    But, yes, that is a bonsai. actually both the trees in there are bonsai. This i my "revitalizer" tank that i keep at 100% humidity, 87F and 18 hours of full spectrum light. the one on the left is a form of a dwarf cypress that my friend brought back from Louisiana recently. I cant seem to get the brown out of it, so i gave it a shot in the revitalizer. The center, orchid of course, unknown species. The left is a Hawaiian Umbrealla tree that i am attempting to train down to smaller leaves. it needs to be in the high humidity to promote it to sprout new leaves after i pluck them all off =)

    hmm its literally a fog maker. does it just use water to operate or does it require some chemicals for some sort of reaction?

    how much do those run for and do you leave it on 24/7 in a normal terrarium? (i.e. not a rehab tank)

    I just gotta say thanks guy/gals a bunch you've been very helpful

    found some on ebay.... I'm going to get one they look sweet!

    ok so which is better the Ultrasonice fogger? Or the Exo Terra fogger?

    They seem to be about the same price.

    In the summer (remember I live in S. California) I have it on 1 hour in the morning and one in the evening. More than that and the condensation starts to drip off the walls and onto the bottom of the tank. It really depends on the humidity, power of your machine, and tank size. I've got the slim ultrasonic humidifier from Mainland mart, and an 15 gal tank. Humidity is 40-95% year round.

    The ultrasonic vibrates water quickly - all you need is the little machine, an outlet and some water in a container. It helps to have something to keep the water from splashing if you've got a small space. The water spurts straight up, so I have a dome positioned above to keep it from making a mess.
