During incubation it doesn't really matter what your humidity is, as long as it's not 4% <--(for example only). If it's this low, I'd imagine that the substrate would dry out before full colonization is attained. 54% will be just fine.

P.S. -- I think you may want to knock your temp down by ~3 degrees. This is because colonizing mycelium generates heat, and so the jars are a bit warmer than the environment around them. It will not kill them to have it slightly above 86*F, but if I remember correctly, 84*F will produce considerably faster colonization times than 87-88*F.

You want some humidity in there but it isn't a major concern.

Nope, you're just fine. I thought you were saying that the temp inside the incubator was at 85*F . . . if it's at 83.7*F, you should be perfect.
