[pleurothallid-l] humidification systems

Thanks Lynn.  I checked their web site (hydrofogger.com) and these look
just like what I need.  They aren't cheap, but it doesn't seem like any
of these systems are.  Am glad to hear these are not as noisy as the
Aquafog.  That would be a bit much in a room connected to the house.
A friend who had a very nicely automated greenhouse used one of the
larger Jaybird Aquafog units along with under-bench misting and large
evaporative coolers at one end of the greenhouse.  Each system was
triggered by a separate environmental control.  The Aquafog worked quite
well I thought.  But for my growing conditions, that would certainly be

I have the Aquafog in my greenhouse.  Yes, it is loud, but it does one
heck of a job.  You might not like all the humidity it puts out if your
room is open to the house.  As an alternative, why not try one of the
hydrofoggers?  Those are not nearly as noisy and are a little less
expensive.  I actually have two I am no longer using.

Hello out there.  This list has been incredibly quiet lately.


I am trying to improve my growing techniques by adding some form of
humidification to one of my growing areas.  I don't have a greenhouse.
I am growing most of my things in what had once been a porch, but is now
glassed in on three sides.  This is connected to the house and is
roughly 250 square feet.  I had considered buying something that I think
was called a hermidifan, manufactured by Jaybird.  Unfortunately, they
seem to have discontinued this.  The smallest unit they now have is the
Aquafog 400.  (I think they must apply model numbers by the price!)  My
one concern about this is the potential for noise.  I have been in
greenhouses that use some of the larger units and they are very loud.
Is anyone on this list using one of these?  If so, how do you like it?
Any suggestions for other humidifying devices that might work well?  As
an alternative, I was also considering installing one of those smaller
outdoor stand alone evaporative coolers - they look something like an
air conditioning unit (I saw these on almost all the roofs of homes in
the Salt Lake City area a year or so ago.)
