needs to be closer to 90 or above i think...how long have your cakes been in the terrarium? I would just mist a few times a day to get the humidity up..

the perlite only has to be damp.
you can mist the walls to raise humidity.

are you sure you have a good humidity gauge?
It might not be reading correctly.

If you could boil the water in the container for misting that would be one thing but you could add a cap full of hydrogen peroxide to the water..or if your tap water is farely clean and free of inhabitants just have at it like that....Do you live in Mexico? If so , Boil and add peroxide.
