I second that. Mistking or Climist are well worth the peace of mind.

I was surprised to see a report in that thread that a 'Mistking timer' failed. Mistking changes timer models periodically, so it would be hard to figure out what timer was referred to. I use quite a few digital timers around the house, though, and I've never had one fail 'on', and AFAIK it a rare occurrence for relays to fail 'closed'. Mistking's new timer is 24v; I wonder if it is a TRIAC switch?
Thanks! I got a MistKing 🙂 and a second vivarium. And then I tore down and replanted the first. Took out all the 9724CA05-A19E-49E7-9477-5EF49E8BC466_1575264020649.jpgsphagnum, replaced the substrate barrier with window screen and added another inch of LECA. I used Joshs Frogs ABG mix and it kind of disintegrated. Hopefully this new setup will aerate the soil and help it drain better. Added some orchid bark and a little pond area. Used cork flats and pieces to build up the height of the substrate area. The red brom is in orchid bark in a net pot 🙂
