By this weekend, I'm hoping to have my 8x8x8. Solexx greenhouse up and running.
I already have have my fans and heater, but I'm not whether to get a misting system or a humidifier to keep the humidity. My goal is keeping the temp about 80 and the humidity also at 80. My intentions is for a true lowland environment.
Which should I get, a misting system or humidifier or a combination of both?
Today I visited a shop that specialized in selling alot of accessories for greenhouses and I asked one of the sales rep, which piece of equipment would be best to keep a greenhouse humidity up. I mentioned a mist system, a humidifier and something I found recently, a greenhouse fogger.
He said to get something that will create the finest mist and the smallest water droplets so it will be easy to evaporate in the air, which is what humdity is, the amount of water in the air. So a mister which creates the biggest droplets of water would only work if you had enough heat in the greenhouse to evaporate those big droplets. So he kinda leaned toward the humidifier, which makes one of the smallest droplets. I also asked him about the greenhouse fogger, he said that is another good item too.
After talking to him, I think I will be getting this item:
Bo I have tried both the high pressure mister and the fogger. The mister works best in the height of summer as the droplets evaporate better and reduce the temperature in my greenhouse. I use the fogger the rest of the time and it works great for all the things that like high humidity, the only problem is I don't only have nepenthes, but they get priority and everything else just has to get use to it.

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.

vidyut: Photobucket has ruined this place and many other forum archives with years and years of photos worth referencing now blurred. Priceless information hostage to services once free, begging for adoption, arbitrarily monetized.
