Lockdown Humidity with a Brinsea Octogon 20 Advance

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ok, I give up. What's the trick to getting the lockdown humidity to 65% and keeping it there? Both wells are full. It is slowly rising. I used room temperature water. Even if it manages to crawl to 65 (which i doubt) how am I going to keep it there without opening the lid for lockdown?

Adding some cloth/kitchen towel to the wells can help. It wicks the water and creates more surface of water therefore increasing your humidity.

Thank you! It seems to be working. It's our first time using the brinsea and it's been completely smooth sailing until here. Lol.
