    Please help - The humidity dropped on day 17 to 28! I'm guessing it was like that for a few hours. [​IMG] Is there any chance they'll survive?

    They will be fine. If your humidity keeps dropping, try adding a sponge or two.

    She said it dropped to 28%. Just get it back up to over 60% by Day 18 and they'll be fine.
