humidity of terrarium
    #999766 - 10/28/02 01:06 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Is my terrarium to big or humidity too low? There is no drops of water on sides. I added water and H2O2 to the perlite. Any suggestions appreciated

You should invest in a hygrometer (got mine for $8 at petsmart)... instead of guestimating.

ok I will go purchase one but if the humidity is indeed too low what is the best way to change that without damaging the cakes?

You could always purchace a cool mist humidifier, or tropic aire humidity/air exchange... or have an air pump feed into a bowl of water to create more humidity.. you can even mist the side of the container.. many different ways to get humidity higher

With that much perlite I guarantee your humidity is fine. A lack of condensation does not necessarily mean low rh. Condensation forms because of the difference between the air temperature inside the chamber and the temperature outside.

My friend who works at a pet shop just snagged me a tropic aire thing. I will be trying it out to see if it really works. I hear they work better if the water temperature is a tiny bit warmer so i just may drop a small water heater in depending on how it works in the first place.
