Worried about humidification...
    #2343494 - 02/16/04 11:28 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I have a analog hygrometer and i tried to calibrate it, but i dont know if it worked or not. i put it in a baggy with a cap containing a couple pinhces of salt, and a couple drops of water. i waited about 5 hours, and it said 60% rh, but it seems crazy to be off 15%.

Also i have a terrarium thats humidified by a wet layer of perlite, but the hygrometer says only 75-80% rh. Does that sound right, or a little too low for being perlite?

Should i try to re-calibrate my hygromer?

im just worried because my cakes are almost ready to birth!

Toss that thing. Go look up digital hygrometers for cigar humidors on eBay. They are more accurate.
