It is my first attempt at casing and I have a few questions. I have set up an IKEA shelving rack in my closet and drapped the entire setup in plastic sheeting. I am using an ultrasonic humidifier to provide humidity, but i am having trouble figuring out what would be best to control the temp. The natural temp inside the tent is around 75 degree, but i would like to increase it. What is the best method for increasing the temperature inside the tent?

You dont need a humidifier duringthe casing steps...it should be in darkness unitl grown through...when you are fruiting, the temperature in side your tent now is perfect.
During seeding and casing, should be around 80F. Good luck

He/she/it is asking HOW to raise the temp...

My rig is in a corner away from heat vents... there's a window above it... Temp in the thing for the past room has been minimum 68.5, max of 75.4, normal is 72.3... (Gotta love electronic hygro/thermometers... Humidity stays between 71 and 99%)

I've been reading how you can use a fish-tank heater in a pan of water, with part exposed to air, to heat the system... I'm think I'm gonna try to use a steam-humidifier instead of a cool-mist humidifier for a while, looping through hose to minimize 'droplets' in the system. 30 minutes every 4 hours would work nicely (Warmup time before heat is about 5-10 minutes)... I'll play around with times, reply in here as I can...

There are three types of people in this world:
Those who can count, and those who can't.
