    Hey guys I've had to go into lockdown a little early cause I needed help putting the eggs in and had to do it when someone was going to be here. My problem is I have 3 sponges a small tray and all 3 reservoirs filled in my lg still air and humidity s refusing to go past 56 I even put the sponges it steaming hot water and everything the windows even fogged for a bit but still didn't get past 56 and starts going back down any suggestions?!!!

    If the windows are fogging up your humidity will be above 75%. Did you calibrate the hygrometer. It sounds like its off.
