Which hygrometer?
    #4123351 - 05/02/05 02:42 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Do I really want a digital hygrometer, because now that I think about it, if the humidity is about 90% won't this be too much for the hygrometer to take? I'm guessing some of the more expensive digital ones should be okay with such high humidity levels, but if so I am unsure of what kind to purchase.

It is good to have a hygrometer with a remote sensor. For those times when you want to know your humidity but dont want to open your chamber.

For your purposes, no hygrometer at WalMart is worth the $3 you'll pay for it. They top out at between 80-90% RH. Even the ones you pay 50 bucks for at Amazon.com brag about being accurate within 10%, which again is pretty useless for trying to keep the RH within the narrow acceptable mushroom range.

The only thing I've found to work in getting RH right is trial and error. Add soda bottle filters until only a few water droplets are forming on the cakes, and you're doing fine.

Accurite? I'll see if I can find that brand locally. No meter I tried at WalMart (and I tried them all) went past 80%.

The only decent hygrometer I've been able to find is German-made and is on amazon.de, but they won't ship to the US.  You have to find a member in Germany who can order it and then trade him for something he needs from the US.
