Unless your hygrometer costs hundreds of dollars, it is more than likely reading the incorrect RH. Even the expensive ones do not read accurately. I read a post a while back, I believe it was by hippie chick, where three different hygrometers in the same chamber read differently. They varied between 70% and 98%... Even if the hygrometer is accurate (I would wager that it isn't), 88% isn't too bad. Even after I mist my entire chamber with a misty mate, my piece of trash radio shack hygrometer wont break 90%. Don't worry about it man.

Yeah, actually I have 4 meters... One says 99% and the other 2 say something similar, around 90, 2 are digital and 1 is not... the one that isnt is from animart and it says somewhere around 90(I think) Ill look tonight.
Thanks,
Helge
