1. no light while incubating.

2. if it is colder than 60 or 65 F in your garage, you may want to alter your plans. incubation should be done at around 85 F. you may get away with colder to a point, but colonization slows dramatically the colder it gets.

3. lower temperatures increase rh, higher temps decrease rh. it sounds to me like temperature might be your bigger problem.

4. some people use no light, some people use a few minutes a day, some people run them for 12 hours, some 24/7. imho, somewhere between a few minutes and 12 hours is good.
