misting
« on: September 16, 2009, 10:29:59 AM »

so ive been seeing alot of ratios for peroxide and water (10%-90%) to mist is it really necessary or would i be fine just using boiled water. i know it would still be a good idea to use the peroxide but just throwing the question out there...

Depends on how dirty your lifestyle is, I usually dont add any peroxide unless I get a little cobweb. the ratio is usually 1;100. Bottled spring water works fine, in my old house I always used strait out the tap with no problems. Dont go thru the trouble of boiling water just to mist.

Srry to interupt, tho i've having a small fruit fly infestation... i think i need 2 pasturize the poo a little better, but in every chamber i seem to have a couple fruit flys, just doin their thing..  No molds, or noticable contamination.. beside the flys.. an the bloomers are growing fine, 20+ grams wet, each..  do you think adding a little peroxide would help. or not have any effect of the flys

Hate to be a stickler for the proper terms, but those are fungus gnats. Fruit Flies actually look different. I deal w/ the gnats in my profession from time to time. The problem is that the fungus is their food source. On the job I would treat the source problem "the fungus" w/ a fungicide (nasty stuff). Obviously in this case we don't want to do that! If you're in the midst of a flush, things look okay and It's not out of hand. I would roll w/ it. I don't think peroxide is going to do anything for you in this case.

Davie K, I've read hedge balls work! Or... gnat strips, they just get stuck to those.
