Humidity?
    #532111 - 01/26/02 04:12 PM (19 years, 1 month ago)

I have a terrarium that is hooked up to a cool mist humidifier. The humidifier has two settings: low and high.
I noticed that when my humidifier is on high, the humidity maxes out at 89%, but when it is on low it gets up to 96%.... can anyone explain why? Is it due to the higher airflow pushing out the humidity or what?

Moving air does not hold humidity well.

The high setting will only be useful to you when/if you get a bigger terrarium. For now, the low setting is perfect. If you really want higher humidity you could set up some kind of dimmer switch and set it on high, but, this will take a lot of playing around.

Do ya suposed that some minimum wage worker on a fast assembly line might of hooked up the high/low switch backwards?

That would be my first guess. (I have seen cheap fans that were like this)
