    Alright I have a few vft, pitchers, and little sticky things but I may have contaminated my tank. I used cheap (really cheap) dirt, peet moss, and regular filtered water from a carbon style drip pitcher. I don't have to ask if I should repot because of the dirt but how about the water? It doesn't rain all that often in utah and the closest thing I have to a distiller is my esspresso machine. So where do I get water? Also how do I keep it humid without causing fungis? I leave the tank closed and I get fungis, if it is open at all my plants dry out.

    Thanks
    Joe

    Can't answer about the fungus but the water should be purchased distilled water or water purified through reverse osmosis. Both are available at your local grocery store. No spring water, tap water, or mineral water. Filtered water (through Brita or something similar) only removes the larger particles in the tap water....

    I'm trying to figure out the fungus/mold thing myself right now also...

    Have fun...

    Welcome to the Forums Joseph [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] !

    Most grocery stores purified water of some sort. Distilled or RO. Whichever you buy, make sure it doesn't have stuff added for flavoring. Some stores have a large RO dispensing machine. Which, after you buy a container, is pretty cheap. My local Wal Mart, charges 33¢/gal for refills.

    Alright that covers water, what about a small humidifier? I saw mention of some that are adjustable, where do I buy one?

    Also my tank temp runs as high as 90-95 degrees (welcome to the dessert). Is this a fatal temp? I'm using cool bulbs and no sun so I'm not sure how I would get it any cooler other than a fan that would drop my humidity too much. Suggestion?


    Thanks

    One last question. The fertalizing non-fertalizer hormone stuff that this site sells. Is it really safe and does it help?
