I have a large tupperware container at the bottom of mine (also I have a plant in it). The plant allows for crickets to climb out if they fall in (otherwise you'll find drowned insects in there if you let them free range the cage like i do). My humidifier drips from the top of the cage screen, down the leaves of the pothos and eventually into the bin at the bottom--see my pic below.Also, how do you drain out the excess water from the bottom?! I have to continuously dry it/clean it to keep up with the water. Any suggestions?
You are just running the fogger at night right? You can just set your misting system to do it for you and she will prefer it because you will not be there to watch her. You want to do like 3 cycles 1 in the morning one mid day and one in the evening... Giving about 4-5 hours in between for the cage to dry back out. 2 minute cycles and then my mid day one I run a 3 minute cycle. All this can vary slightly depending on the humidity you get where you live. I have higher humidity so I just make sure that my hydrometer is not measuring over that 70 percent. Mine stays consistent 50-60 percent then spikes when misting.I got a new light and a fogger for her. Does my automatic mister have to spray for 2 minutes even if i am hand misting her throughout the day??
Look into dragon ledges... they allow you to mount pots to the side keeping your floor clear for easy cleaning https://dragonstrand.com/dragon-ledges/So it makes sense why you hang your plants on the side. It is SO much work to move the plants each time to clean out the bottom! This cham is really giving me a run for my $. Pun intended!!!
Hmmmmm well in that case.. I wonder if you could put a timer on it to over ride it. I use these and love them. You can program 7 separate on off times. But it only can be used with the device you want to run that way. https://www.amazon.com/Woods-50029W...4418456&s=gateway&sprefix=woods+timer,aps,251And my mister has a timer, but it says i can mist for 15, 30, 45, or 60 seconds. And only every 1, 3, 6, or 12 hours. And I was fogging once during the day and once at night. The day only like 45 minutes, the night a couple hours. But you think I should not fog during the day? I have practically 0 humdity here in so cal. Lol!
Yeah so my cage temp at night drops to about 65-67 degrees. My only heat sources are my quad T5 light fixture and the heat lamp.ok, I will have to wait until next month to fix my misting. How cold does your cage get at night? And do you use an extra heat source besides the light? It seems like the lights dont get nearly enough, but the heat bulb I have gets way too hot now that it isn't winter.
