Natural Humidity During Casing?
    #4370755 - 07/05/05 01:30 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Im just about at the stage where I need to have a terrarium or something with the right humidity...

I had an idea of just loosely sealing a terrarium and letting the natural humidity in my garage take care of it... On average a day is 65-75% and night is around 70-90%...

How well would this work, as a very cheap method?

What about air exchange??

If the terrarium is loosely sealed it should garner most of its humidity from the casing itself. It should do.

It should work but I'd get it up a bit. Myself and this is just me I never lower the humidity for casings. I noticed that pin counts were way way way higher.

Yup I never lower it. Everybody bitches when I say this so I just do it and keep quiet about it most of the time. I try to keep it 95% all the time.  :thumbup:
