I want to try a very diluted
   fertilizer in the humidifier but I am not daring enough to just try it. I
   wonder if anyone has tried this ? If so, what were the results etc. ?


I would be very reluctant to try this. Unless your humidifier is of the atomizer type (actually disperser droplets of water into the air) you will never get any fertilizer into the air at all (e.g. evaporative or wick-type humidifiers). Even with the atomizer type, any fertilizer that does become airborne may well end up on more than just your plants (e.g your lungs).

Best to use a sprayer of some type with which you can directly spray the foliage.
