humidity problems
    #3443582 - 12/03/04 09:41 PM (12 years, 6 days ago)

i used 2 inches of perlite with about 3/4" to 1" water. waited a few hours, and humidity was only at 75%. so i added more water. few hours later - around 80 %. today i woke up and it's still at 80% and my water level is almost as high as my perlite. ive been misting a lot with a fine mister to keep the cakes hydrated. there IS condensation on the sides of the terrarium. im using serane wrap as my top. do i need to get an ultrasonic? what should i do at this point? mist heavily and often? will raising temps raise RH? thx a lot

I'm willing to bet the meter is junk.

yeah im with magash on this one for sure. if its one of those cheap ones you get from the pet store it wont read above a certain humidity. if you have condensation i would imagine you to be good.

Ya id be willing to bet money that your gauge is bunk. If there is condensation on the glass you're nearing 100%

i had a low humidity problem too... what i did was got a cheap rubbermaid container, like 4 bucks, with a snap-on lid, and put weather stripping around the lip of the container, so it sealed tightly, and used damp perlite. It works great
