Hmmm...i run my cool mist 24/7 and blast with ultrasonic fog 4 times per day.
Could it be too much humidity?

Thx.

good observation :thumbup:

and yes the humidity comments are true

another bit of food for thought, relative humidity is relative, to temperature.  is there perhaps a source of heat near that corner of the FC that might also be contributing?

This comes up on a regular basis. There is a difference between cracked caps and split caps. Cracked caps are caused by low humidity, which cracks the caps to give them a reptile type appearance. What you see above is split caps. It's part genetic and part just from very rapid growth where the cap simply rips apart. Split caps are not environment related.
