Best humidifier for a micro grow

Anyone got any reccomendations for a small humidifier. I'd love to be able to find one I could use for a long time without refilling.
I'm not sure if you can get little ones that are plumbed in, maybe they could be modified.
Any suggestions are welcome

I use the pro breeze 3.8l ones in small spaces with an inkbird humidity controller.. Used them for years without a controller though just adjusting by hand.

That's my suggestion.

How long does it last before needing a refill?

I've devised a full ghetto solution.

I read somewhere about increasing humidity by sticking a towel in a vessel of water and leaving a bunch of the towel out of the vessel and exposed to the air. Water wicks up the towel and then evaporates into the atmosphere.

I did that but then wrapped part of the exposed towel around my tropf blumat watering ceramic so now as the towel dries it gets dripped on by the ceramic.

It's plumbed into the watering reservoir so should be able to go for ages.

It seems to have lifted my humidity from 25-30% up to about 55%, so I'm pretty pleased so far

once every 2-3 months maybe, unless you have them in bright light which I suppose might grow stuff quicker in there. I covered mine anyway..

Full it takes from 2-5 days to empty depending on the RH you are trying t correct.

The towel technique is innovative but will definitely grow mold on it after a short while.

how Are those little humidifiers powered? Is it possible to plug them into a humidity regulator so it is automatic?

I hang a moist kitchen towel in the box.
Change it out when I water the plants.
