Hey all!!
    #2934120 - 07/27/04 10:09 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

My humidity in my terrarium is only at 88%. I can't get it to go any higher. I mister the sides and put it in a little warmer area.

Is 88% humidity going to be o.k. and how else can I bring it up, it just seems like it doesn't want to.

88 might be okay if you are doing casings

Just in case you haven't done it already,you should calibrate your hygrometer to be sure you are getting an accurate reading.

How do you do that? I just picked up a humidy gauge from wal-mart $6.

Is that not the right meter?

soak a wash cloth in water and ring it out, then wrap the hygrometer in the cloth for like 10-15 minutes then check the humdity as soon as you unwrap it. it should read at least 100%
