A humidity tent is a large, humidity controlled environment. They are excellent for maintaining high humidity for Salvia divinorum. It is just a large, enclosed humidity-controlled environment. You may be able to find one at a gardening store, but they are usually expensive and small. If you can find something else that would work, maybe a shade or bug tent, you can use that as well.

An ideal tent has no bottom but is otherwise fully enclosed and has high-quality zippers for entrance. If your tent will be outside and is not already shaded, you will need to drape shade cloth over it. You can also make an indoor humidity tent and place it by a window. For some a fine screen and regular misting will keep the humidity high enough, but if not you will need to cover your tent with plastic sheeting. However, in most places its a good idea to cover your tent with plastic in the winter months to keep up humidity and temperature. Something to keep in mind if you use plastic sheeting is to make sure the plant gets some fresh air in there regularly. If you don't ventilate it every-so-often the plant will likely develop problems such as browning leaf edges.

A good way to keep humidity and temperature ideal inside your tent is to set up some misters on a timer. Set them to go on for 3-5 minutes a few times everyday.

yeah venting is key, plants use co2 and photosythesize into thier jazz and when there is too much O2 in the tent it gets bad, just circulate it out mabey even blow into the tent with some good deep breaths, all ur warm moist breath would be good.

Heheh, cool. Creative chamber design. Feel free to post a grow log for your plant. It looks like it should root fine. But if you got them like that from eBay thats definitely pretty lame.

 DO NOT USE GREEN BOTTLES AS HUMIDITY TENTS the reason you see green when you look at a leaf, is because it is the only color reflected out of the visible spectrum, all the other light is absorbed and used for chemical reactions within the plant, so if you have a green bottle all the color is absorbed into the bottle but green, then the bottle only letting the green light through reaches the plant, which reflects all of that light so, basically almost no light is making it into the plant, hurting it!!!

When you make a humidity chamber does it have to cover all of the soil or just the soil around my plant? and if it is a new plant how often should I mist it?

As long as it creates a seal it'll be fine. Don't mist the plant directly, rather the inside of the humidity chamber is enough.

If it's well established and not stressed, you can do it whenever you feel like.

Yup, salvia absolutely needing constant high humidity is a myth. You can grow awesome plants in low rh if you acclimate them.

Just use what's available to you. Think about what you have in your house right now. Almost everyone can construct one with materials that they have in their house. *Keeping in mind that your plants aren't 8ft tall*

Use coat hangers, string, wax and plastic.

Bend hangers into a pyramid, tie pyramids together at intersecting points. Drip wax on the string and rub it in for a good 'tear/wear proof' connection. Wrap it in a translucent plastic. Stick a fluorescent/CFL light bulb above it. Bam, grow chamber.

Or go pound back a 2L bottle of pop, stick over plants.

Remember to have holes for air circulation. And a 'water catcher'/bucket to catch excess water.

I was wondering if it is a good or bad idea to grow 2 plants in the same pot?

Bad idea. The root systems will entwine so if either need to be transplanted or removed for any reason, you won't be able to do so without lots of damage. This also would make it easy to spreads pests or infections between plants, and last but not least, there's no reason for them to have to fight for nutrients / space.

There have been numerous instances of people planting more than one plant in a pot. According to some it actually helps them grow better. As Drift did say it does up the chance of infestations spreading and you can't repot individually, but they can survive and have some benefit according to some.

 I have had good luck doing this with sally as well as many other types of plants, she makes for a pretty bush.But i do think they should be grown outside like this to ensure enough light  for proper lower leaf growth

This was a stem with several nodes planted under the soil, it sprouted a bunch of babies





after a couple months.

 They also help suport each other , so i do not have to stake them so far.

yeah discharge is key, plants use co2 and photosythesize into thier applesauce and if there is too abundant O2 in the covering it gets bad, just broadcast it out mabey even draft into the covering with some acceptable abysmal breaths, all ur balmy clammy animation would be good.
