    There are several posts about that, but you can add a sponge, folded paper towels, or another container of water to the incubator. Anything that will increase the surface area of the water that is in there will increase the humidity. Besides just adding more warm water.

    It can, but it will cool the incubator a little. The object is to keep it as stable as possible. [​IMG]
