I posted this in the regular M.C. but I figured id give it a shot here. I have a nice size terrarium with about 2 inches of wet perlite. Its not drenched so I know this isnt the problem. But I thought I had low humidity and everyone said not to worry its fine. Well today I bought a humidity gauge and it reads 68%... thats really really low. Do you guys know what could help?

Mist and/or apply a *little* heat to the bottom. A terrarium heater for reptiles (under-glass, flat model) might do the trick. If you do bottom heat, your casings will dry out more quickly. Take care of that by misting them directly.

BTW, are you sure the gauge is correct? What does it read out in the open room?

Where there's skill, there's a better way..

a monkey once had one of those crappy guages(it's digital right??) ... then then he got a humidifier and when the humidity was at or above 90% water condensed the guage and broke it ! (go figure) .... i think you need to get one those old timer humidity guages ....or if you got some more cash invest in one of those indoor/outdoor models that have this little piece that your supposed to have outside and it has a wire running to the housing which is inside of the house ... looks like something you can run into your terrarium without getting the important electronics and/or batteries wet.... peace hope i helped
