digital thermometer/hygrometer
    #2189602 - 12/19/03 07:52 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Just wondering whats a good price is for a half decent digital thermometer/hygrometer. Also wondering what u guys/gals out there use digital or the old fashion kind and whats the name brand and how well does it works for U. I found this one for 39.95 its new but there small blemish on 1 to 3 of the corners. Is this a ok deal?

if you set up your terrarium properly,by that i mean a Poor Mans Pod or similar,you'll soon realise that you never needed a hygrometer.
an acurate temp gauge is much more usefull especially one that records the highs and lows over a 24hour period.i'm sure that anyone with a few grows under their belts would agree.

I'm no pro, but I can usually tell humidity by looking. Maybe not exact but close enough. I only have one of those hi/lo thermometers and I'm happy with it. Its indoor outdoor so I have a sensor in the terrarium and I can tell the temperature of the room too!!  :thumbup:

most of the digital hygrometers my hippie friend has used in the past have all gone bad,  due to moisture build up inside of them.

:sad:

I agree with hanky. I NEVER even use mine any more.

I would say get something growing, and only if you need to diagnose a problem, look to a hygrometer.

WalMart has a combo Thermometer/ Hygrometer for about $3.50 that may require calibration but will give you a good idea of where your setup is at should you need to troubleshoot.

Save your money on high-dollar gadgets, and spend it on essentials.

if you do use a digital hygrometer,remove it from your terrarium once every few weeks and sit it in a warm dry place...above the fridge or water heater,this will dry it out and prolong it's life.

My digital hygrometer only went up to 80%. Then it broke. I went to petco and got a hygrometer for reptile tanks for $10. Works great. though It needs calibration for sure.
