Hi there! �� mom of twin babies here, I have been through a few humidifiers! Question, do you have your own office, or are you in a cubicle?
Here are a few things:
1. Cool mist humidifiers make your space clammy, and they push out a stream of “vapor”, which for you might work out bc you could point it towards yourself. They can breed bacteria, and the ones I have used all leaked all over my table, so beware. Whatever one you end up using, put it in a shallow bowl so that if it does leak, it doesn’t short circuit your computer.
2. If you get cold in your office, I suggest a warm mist humidifier.
2. If you have more space on your floor in your own office, I suggest the best reviewed humidifier listed below. It doesn’t mist which is nice, it has a UV filter to kill any bacteria (usually have to change out once a season, WELL worth it compared to the cool mist ones that break and you have to clean all the time). It also helps circulate air, and you can put tap water instead of distilled water. The other ones require distilled. (I still put Brita filtered water in mine). You could put in on the floor, next to your office plant or something. It has three settings as wel. I figure if you’re going to really get a humidifier, do it right. I’m also not worried about this one leaking all over everything. This is the one we have in our house, though I’m looking for a warm one too.
Hope this helps!

P.S this is not a cute little small thing, it’s BIG, but you can put it on your floor. I would suggest this or something like this one.
Sounds like the bridge is too low. The C string should be @8.5mm above the end of the fingerboard This time of year (the winter heating season) the cello shrinks so the bridge goes down. It is a good idea to keep the cello in a humidified environment and have a calibrated hygrometer to keep track of the humidity. Probably won’t change this, but it will protect your cello and make it happier. Here is an article on the topic. I have his hygrometer. BTW, most major violin dealers in NYC keep the humidity at 40% so that instrument don;t experience shock when they are taken out of the shop.
I got this humidifier when one of ours died. Terrific

This is the one I’ve been using for the past two years. It’s packed well so I wouldn’t worry about it being broken. It can be loud but it’s super effective.
Big recommendation for this Honeywell. Easy to get your hands in and wipe everything. Very few pieces. Also rec buying some kind of bacteriostatic treatment to help keep it clean.
It runs for about 6-8 hours at a time! I start it every morning as part of my daily routine and let it run until it’s out of water. It sits right next to the plant so the plant does get some of the mist, but the vapor is so fine, I haven’t noticed water beading up or anything like that.
Here’s a link if you want to check out the exact model I bought. It just needs cleaned every few days. Raydrop Cool Mist Humidifier
Some cigar/smoke shops and most Headshops have them. I usually add a few to my order when i get some smoking accessories. For example Amazon
Recommended pack size to weed:
Boveda 4 gram: 7-14 grams of medicine.
Boveda 8 gram: 14-28 grams of medicine.
Edit: When you are looking online you might see they are available in various humidity levels (for different stuff) and 62% is used for weed.
I wish 3.5g could last me a month, but usually gone in 2 days.
On Amazon, buy a bag of boveda brand humidity control. You can use the same one over and over for a couple of months.
if you have time you could cancel your order on the OCS store and just order them off amazon: 4 gram 62%, 8 gram 58%
Pour vrai perds pas ton temps et commandes toi des pads de contrôle/maintien d'humidité. Perso j'utilise les Boveda (y'a d'autres marques qui doivent faire la job aussi) que j'commande sur Amazon. Une 20aine$$ pour un pack de 10 pads de 8gram à 62% humidité.
La recette est simple:
Pot masson + 1 pad boveda + ton weed.
Criss toute dans le pot masson
Fermes le pot masson
Range le pot masson dans un endroit sombre qui fait pas 35 degrés

Bonne journée les chums!
Hahaha I totally understand!!! Glad to help! And don’t risk poisoning yourself with those packs! Never heard it was food-grade safe, use these! Worth every penny.
If you miss your new patient you will need to schedule another one, and you won't be able to just go any time, like you can after the first appointment. Sorry mate. I suggest going and stocking up. Grab some Boveda packs from Amazon to keep what you get fresh longer.
I’ve been using the Honeywell HCM 350 which has a very easy to clean tank and can run all night.
Whoever one you end up choosing, the most important thing to keep in mind with humidifiers is consistent cleaning, at the very least once a week.
Y'all motherfuckers snitched. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00JV27MF4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I was buying these for 12$ 6 months ago and now they are 30 on amazon.
By the by, they are the best thing ever. Anyone who doesnt use them gets instantly converted when they see how fresh your weed is. Try and order them online, head shops are rip off for them.
I wouldn't base your LP choice on this at all since they cost $1.20 each on Amazon and last quite a while.
se quer controlar a humidade tenta usar packs de humidade tipo boveda ou se tiver algum humidificador ou desumidificador
I have an ultrasonic humidifier from amazon. It holds 4-6 liters and doesn't produce much heat or noise. You can set a humidity target and it will turn on and off as needed. It is something similar to this https://www.amazon.com/LEVOIT-Humidifiers-Ultrasonic-Humidifier-Whisper-Quiet/dp/B01MYGNGKK/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=vivosun+humidifier&qid=1626876765&sr=8-8
What type of exhaust do you have for the tent? I'm also growing in a 4x2 and I found I needed a 4" exhaust fan with an adjustable dial otherwise the fan was too powerful and I was just sucking all the humidity out.
You should really get some hygrometers to see what they're at. And throw your flowers into a glass jar with one and some type of hydration method if they're not at the right humidity.
Boveda Packs, Boost Packs, Humidity Stone, etc.
Bringing your flower up to the right humidity is probably the most important step for best results.
I like this Pure Enrichment humidifier a lot.
- pretty quiet
- compact compared to some, and appropriate size tank for a bedroom overnight
- easy to clean: no crannies that you can’t muscle your way to w some ingenuity and some paper towels/ q tips. Though I usually just soak the basin/well and fiddly bits in distilled vinegar once a week.
- easy to fill and dump bc the cord detaches from the base of the humidifier
- there are only 2 humidity settings, so customization is limited
- there is a bit of a blue glow from the button that I find irritating. I usually just flip it away from me, but ymmv depending on your light tolerance
Definitely this one: https://www.amazon.com/LEVOIT-Humidifiers-Ultrasonic-Humidifier-Whisper-Quiet/dp/B01MYGNGKK/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=levoit+lv600hh&qid=1621277771&sr=8-2
It's so easy to clean! There's a reason most plant people end up with this model.
You might be able to use that one, but you'll want some way to control the RH (if it doesn't have one built in). The inkbird humidity controller is good for that. I have this and it worked well for me

For dehumidifier, this is probably overkill for most tents, but I was having trouble during the final flower stages keeping my humidity down so I put this one in my tent. Been working out perfectly so far:

Then you want a big boy. https://www.amazon.com/Vornado-Evap40-4-Gallon-Evaporative-Humidifier/dp/B00O0WOO74/ or similar that handles your size and has large tanks so you aren't filling it every other day. https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/humidifiers/buying-guide/index.htm speaks to cool vs. warm type which you should research.
I also highly recommend getting these boveda packs I mentioned earlier and adding one to every eighth you buy. Weigh it before and after the packs been in for a bit (anywhere from a couple hours to a couple days) and you may be surprised to see how much weight you get back (not to mention flavor and enjoyment): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XB26Q8N?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I had this exact same problem, brother- I was using high ppm tap water in an ultra sonic humidifier. White mineral dust was coating everything and clogging up my carbon filter. You can switch to distilled water, as was mentioned. Or you can switch to an evaporative humidifier like this. This humidifier doesn't make dust. It uses a replaceable wick/filter which traps the minerals.
I'm really sensitive to dry air during the winter, so we've gone through a number of humidifiers. This is the one we currently have, and it is great. I have also noticed that it helps with my skin care routine as well as not having a sore throat when I wake up.
Mine is the Vicks warm mist humidifier sold on Amazon (I think it's currently the #1 bestseller in humidifiers).
I love it. I've bought two (I needed them for two different places), have had them for three years and love them. Would highly recommend.
The auto shutoff function is great! I also run it while I'm at work, since it just turns itself off once it's out of water. I don't use the Vicks serum/liquid vaporizing feature, but I've heard people say that it's useful during cold season.
Whatever you choose, make sure to buy one with warm/hot steam, not cold mist. The cold mist humidifiers spritze the air above them with cool water. It definitely doesn't truly humidify anything. I've tried several of them with no luck. Also, they tend to over moisten the area right around the humidifier (since most of the "mist"/water spritz falls to the ground) and can subsequently cause mold.
Running a warm most humidifier has he added benefit of cutting down on heat costs -- depending on the setting, it can raise the temperature of your room up to 10F (low setting can prevent this). Also, they don't require filters or any added purchases.
Edit: link and auto shutoff comment
Yeah it saves me when i'm out of fresh weed leaf/bud . Not sure about headshops selling it but i got mine from amazon https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00JV27MF4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
They're hydration packs you can get on Amazon!
You place them in a jar with your weed and it helps them to stay at the perfect moisture level. Prevents a harsh smoke and makes it burn slower.
I get them off Amazon, but they're about $20 for a ten pack. I usually get the 4-gram 62% packs (which can easily humidify up to a half oz).
You can also rehydrate your weed by putting it in a sealed jar with a small wad of wet paper towel for about 20 minutes, but it leaves a weird taste if you use tap water. Might work better if you use distilled water in that scenario.
Best seller. Curing helps potency a ton, bag appeal, flavors, smells, https://www.amazon.com/Boveda-62-Percent-2-Way-Humidity-Control/dp/B00JV27MF4/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=humidity+packs&qid=1599068199&sprefix=humidity&sr=8-3
