Hey Dude, Scotty, Guru and the DGC. Just wanted to share another DIY grow hack. I shared the hack with the mobile scrogs awhile back that seemed pretty well received so throwing another one out there.
So I started with a standard humidifier and found myself refilling it daily if not more depending on how high I had the humidity set at.
So this setup allows up to a 4 gallons of water which usually only needs to be filled every other day with humidity set pretty high. I’ve gone as long as 3 days before refilling.
Basically this is a 5 gal bucket with an ultrasonic fogger running inside with a 120 mm fan blowing through a hole in the lid where the fog is forced out through another smaller hole in the bucket lid. Below are the parts that I used. I opted for a fogger unit from house of hydro as this seems to be a higher end fogger but normally these can be picked up on amazon for $10-$15. The rest of the parts are pretty cheap. All in all this build can run probably $20-$40 give or take which will give you a higher capacity humidifier.
I am also using an Inkbird humidity controller which allows me to dial in my humidity to right where I need it. An alternative to this is to use a smaller or larger pvc pipe for the fog to exit the lid.
Parts and links to what I used are below as well as a youtube video with it shown in action.
Love the show guys, happy growing!!!
