    Today I finished the hardware of my fermentation chamber. I installed a humidity controller and a small ultrasonic humidifier and did some test runs. Seems to work fine !
    I'll keep the temperature just above 50 C (or 120 F) and humidity around 80- 85.
    Misted 2 lbs of viso and 2 lbs ligero wrapper one by one to get and even humidity on the leaves. I'll keep them overnight in a sealed box and will check them in the morning. Maybe give them another spay.
    Tomorrow I'll put the leaves inside.

    This is the hardware inside. The ventilator is coupled on the heat controller.
    The humidifier has his own control. By placing the humidifier after the fan the mist is sucked in the fan and nicely diffused.

    Unfortunately I had to stop my project.
    The humidifier has a proximity sensitive switch and I can no by pass it to control it with my humidity controller.
    Unless I find an electronic repair shop which can help me out, there is no other way hen buying a humidifier with a mechanical switch.
    This will take me 3 weeks to get it here !
