temp in fruiting chamber

I am using perlite humidification w/ 2 bubble stones. The temp is around 75 f. The humidity is only at 80% and will not raise. If I raise the temp slightly will I get a gain in humidity?

How do you know what the humidity is at? Leave the temp, its good. Just mist with a hand mister. Chances are if your looking at a hygrometer, its inacurate. A perilite chamber with an airpump (its under the perilite right?) will have a much higher humidity then 80%.

Well I was thinking that mabey the air pump is not working well becasue it is old. Not sure what a hygrometer is but I got it at a pet store. It reads humidity and is used for lizards.

i think i bought the same one. it doesn't read above 85%.

there's a salt method for checking your hygrometer error floating around the forums somewhere, do a search for it.

if you have perlite, and air pump, and condensation on the walls, you don't have anything to worry about.

EDIT-

oh crap, forgot this one.

if you raise the temperature, the humidity will not raise, it will lower. dropping temperatures will raise humidity... but it's only a quick fix.
