I have a 12x6x6 plastic bin. I have 1inch of wet perlite in on the bottom, and 1/4inch of standing water, from the bottom up. However the humidity is only at 80. I am wondering what I can do to improve this. If I have to start over it is ok, because I do not have any cakes in it yet.

what are you using to check the humidity? those cheapo pet store ones are not to accurate.

Also are you misting a couple times a day and is it a sealed bin? (you should fan 2-4 times a day...

is that 1 inch total depth, and 1 quarter of that depth is water, leaving 3/4" dry perlite? If so try another inch of perlite, bring the water level almost up to the perlite level, about a half inch lower. that works well for me.

if you think it's your hygrometer, you can get a nice one at walmart for 15 bucks that does RH/Temp/Time and has a backlit screen.
