Terrarium setup mod, pics
    #2384459 - 02/27/04 07:50 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Pictured below are various components of my terrarium. I just moved the humidifier to the outside of the terrarium. It doesn't feel nearly as humid as it did before i moved it, but maybe the air was too humid before. I'm running the humidifier on its lowest setting because the higher settings provide too much air going in so that the vent can't even keep up and the sides get really stretched out as you can see in the 3rd pic. In any case, has anyone seen anything like my setup, am i getting enough humidity in my terrarium even though the air is constantly being refreshed? I dunno, i guess i just want some pointers and opinions from people who've done something similiar or know somebody who has. i really need to get one of those digital humidistats so i can check my humidity! thanks.

do you have reason to believe the rh is higher? your meter might be broken. by bootleg you imply a low quality hygro right? id get a new digital hygro and wing it until it arrives. you should be able to tell if rh is high enough, definitely above 50%. my ultrasonic has 2 dial controls, one for mist volume and one for humidity. i dont know what to do about yours if the problem is the humidifier.

Tried to search for some terrarium picture, but there
were too many results...
I'm almost sure I saw similar setup in here, try to
make a search in the posts.
I would suggest you to use a big bowl of perlite or geolite
with water to increase the RH inside the terr. At the
bottom should be a a great deal... worth a try :thumbup:
