I bought a barometer(humidity) and I'm using a rubbermaid with the top section cut out and a saran wrap peek hole. I also have a spray shield and I tested it and it will read over 100(on the guage).

maybe
If you mist it several times a day and fan...you might be ok.
Fan before you mist.

I can get 98% humidity by using a bubbler and misting.

What exactly do you mean by bubbler?

I have a fish aquarium pump and tubing and I have this jar that has a on/off valve at the bottom. I did a test on just using that I only got around 68%humidity, compared to a normal of 30. :confused: :confused:

A barometer measures pressure.

What tek is that, could you possible provide a link because I've never read about that one. 

From what I've read of your technique, I'd say your current set up will not provide adequate humidity if you are growing off of a cake, if its a casing, you should be alright because the casing itself will provide humidity.

That's strange, so am I.  :smirk:  Just think about what you are posting, you need to explain your question a little more thoroughly.  Thorough questions usually equate to thorough answers.

If you are doing a casing hand misting is fine. If you are using cakes you gotta have a little more than that.
