so i have a 35 gallon tub going with Shroomgods Straw tek, it has been cased im also using shroomgods humidifier tek and my humidity in the chamber is at 80% cant seem to get it higher.

The substrate has been cased with peat/verm/lime

i have the humidifier running 24/7 fanning and misting about 3 times a day. Does anyone know what i can do to get the humidity up the 15-20% i need? Please help dont want to screw this up

I wouldn't trust that hygrometer.

Wrap it in a damp towle and after an hour see wat it says. It should read 99%. If you can adjust it great adjust to read 99%.

If this is a monotub you don't need a humidifier.

I suspect the hygrometer and its a lot higher than you thing

Thanks for the responses i just did a misting and directly sprayed the hygrometer down REALLY well if it doesnt go to 99% i know its that one all the walls constantly are saturated so i hope im good i will see how it goes.

Also its not a monotub, im doing those on my next grow right now im finishing a straw grow.

what kind of tub do you have? if its not a mono, then what are you using.

Remember condensation only means that the inside is warmer than the outside, nothing to do with humidity.

getting your hygrometer wet i wouldnt think would be much of a test.
