    What humidity devices are on the market? I've heard of humidity trays, are they helpful? I'm talking for the house/ windowsill.

    There is a super sonic humidifier that fires supersonic waves at the water, and it vibrates all the particles apart. This evaporates water very fast, so you get lots of humidity...

    Close Parasuco but no cigar. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] It is an Ultrasonic Humidifier which I own and they work GREAT! I have one for my N.Rajah terrarium and to add humidity to other pots and palnts as well as my home. Here's is a picture of it in action.


    Everyone can see the mist right? It is hard to get a picture of it.

    I take the pipe and simply place the opening in the mouth of the tank. AT nihgt I place the SMALLER opening in the mouth of the tank as if the larger end was placed there the water would build up overnight and my Rajah would be an aquatic Nepenthes. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Here are a few pictures.


    Here is the large opening angled inot the tank mouth.


    Here's the smaller opening that is used at night to lessen water output. But it puts out enough water to condense alot on the N.Rajah.


    Here is the Rajah with the fan on which lessens the visablity of the mist because it is sucked into the fan and it makes the mist turn into water and spray it all over the tank.



    Fan off more mist.

    Nathaniel, Ultrasonic Humidifiers run around 30-40 dollars each. It also depends on quality,brand and features of it. Mine is a KAZ high quality as KAZ is a specialist company in humidifying and it has a 2 speed fan feature. The water tank has a 1/2 gallon capacity. Very nice addition to your growing supplies for Nepenthes if you care to spend a few extra dollars. *ALSO A NOTE* Use ONLY REVERSE OSMOSIS OR DISTILLED WATER IN ULTRASONIC HUMIDIFIERS OR ELSE MINERALS WILL BUILD UP FROM ANY OHTER WATER AND RUIN YOUR ULTRASONIC HUMIDIFER.
