Casing Humidity
    #3987270 - 03/29/05 10:33 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I don't have a hygrometer and I was wondering how you can tell you have and 85 percent humidity with casing? I never really know what my humidity level is all I know is that the sides of the terrarium are foggy.

You can get a rinky dink gauge at HomeDepot for like $4. They work, but can get inconsistant in the high end range.

If you have steady condensation glistening inside the container, you are in the 85% range(+/- as few %)

Misting your casing surface several times a day and the walls once or twice is plenty. Fanning + evaporation of the casing layer provide more than enough RH.

Unless you plan on spending a minumum of $25, don't bother buying a hygrometer, they aren't worth a hill of beans in that price range.

To find a place to live between the negatives and positives.
