fruitin help?
    #1048546 - 11/13/02 04:29 AM (14 years, 25 days ago)

how do i know if condensation is too much or too little? I think i have too little. 2 cakes are in a terrarium 72Q size with .5L of damp perlite and a light stuffed in top and .5inch hole in bottom? sufficient or not?

If that light is INSIDE. You better watch temps in there. A light in a confined place gives off a lot of HEAT. A small flouresent type on the OUTSIDE is safer.

If you have good condensation on the inside --- the rh is high. The only way to know what it is..............is with a humidity meter. 6T  :tongue:

Unless you acquire a REAL SPENDY one. The $30 digital ones seem to run + or - 5 or 6%. If not calibrated, on the high end, they can be off 10%.

I gave up on the bastards & bought a $175 humidistat.
