Does this look a little off to you? (PIC)
    #2082794 - 11/08/03 01:46 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

A FOAF has started using an ultrasonic humidifier on a timer (12 mins every 2 hours) for humidity and air exchange and is wondering if her hygrometer is being accurate. By the looks of her terrarium, the walls are dripping with condesnation. But when you look at the hygrometer it says it is only at about 80% humidity.



Is she getting enough humidity or does she need to increase the frequency in timing her humidifer? Thanks in advance,

I'd say that your hygrometer tells lies.
Are you going to use it for cakes or casings?

you have moisture on the sides of the tub,so i'd say you have adequate humidity.
just looking at your tub will tell you more about it's condition than any hygrometer.

yet another faulty hygrometer story. i have 3 hygrometers, all inaccurate!

back when i used a humidifier (mmgg: coke bottles, tubing, timer - the whole 9 yards) i found that 12 mins every 2 hours was still too much. presumably you came up with this figure by practice?

yeah she got the idea to have it do things for 12 mins every 2 hours by reading on the forum and seeing what worked for other people... but it doesn't seem to quite work out for everyone the same... do you, or does anyone for that matter, have any better suggestions for her?
