    Adam,

    Im going out of town for a bit in the morning, but when I get back Ill endeavor to take some pics for ya...

    but for now, yes that humidifer is perfect.... if it's the reli-on brand it is my favorite (company is no longer in business btw)

    I try to keep my cephs at least 60-70% RH with good airflow

    My media mix is

    2.5p Peat
    2.5p Coco fiber
    1p Sand
    1p APS (replaced perlite)
    0.5p Charcoal
    0.5p LFS

    deep pots

    Monthy drench with ampacbiotech.com's trichoderma
    Fish pellets once a month and root feedings once or twice a year

    There are many well proven techniques, this is how I grow mine

    Thanks Butch.
    I have been waiting to see your setup
    I bought a "grow tent" for indoor growing with lots of vent ports and hangers and need to work out a good cheap setup.
    It's going to be my propagation chamber

    Adam,

    Here is a pic of my main rack when i first put it up and fitting the foil panels


    Here are the main "mechanicals".... again very simple


    The front was then draped in a clear plastic drop cloth for access

    Its a very "utilitarian" basement type setup. Efficient, low cost and easy to work with.

    Lights, fans and humidifier are all on the same timer with ground fault protection. Cross airflow and humidification are both constant whenever lights are on

    I am in the process of building a new one. I got my "lowes" shelving unit this week. Ive already got the solenoid valves, digi-timer, misting system, drip irrigation systems, electronic temp controls, humidistat, failsafe alarms etc... it will be my uber-rack on 'roids LOL

    but with me, it might be another year or two before its done

    Interesting and strikingly similar to my set up ! I must be doing something right. You've given me some ideas too. Thanks !

    Av8tor1,
    Thanks for the pics.
    How does the humidifier work with the hose facing down? Do you get a lot of condensation drip?
    I tried to put my humidifier outside of my new grow tent but it was dripping and wasn't keeping up the humidity.
    Thanks,
    Zero

    Red face

    Ive kept the hose short and the section that runs downhill to the outlet is shorter still. However, I do get some dripping but nothing major. I only use RO water in my humidifiers so its really no big deal and I allow it to drip into one of the pots or sometimes into a drain pot.

    I also have another humidiifer that I sometimes use... its the relion brand. I have a longer hose on it. When i use it I have it configured where most of the condensation runs back into the humidifier itself.

    Keeping the humidity up hasnt been an issue, it is easy to keep it around 85-90% with the furthest corner of the rack easily above 65%

    Many times my electronic humidity gauge will say "Over" indicating that it's over 90% RH
    (gauge maximum)

    (Crissy deserves the credit for this specific mod, the adapter is snug but easily removed for refilling.... and no leakage)


    I use to just place the humidifier under the rack... but sooner or later I would get algae growth on the humidifier. It looked bad and I'm sure it didnt do much for humidifer life

    Very very nice Av!! It looks so professional compared to my set up! I guess my crappy instructions made sense after all .
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
