    okay, i'm suppose to go into lockdown tonight, yay!!! but i'm confused about where to add water in the bottom. the directions i found online arn't that clear, and i lost the ones that came with it looong ago, lol. i have the middle part filled, and it says to add water to the "other compartment". well, there's 2 other ones..., which one do i fill??? the one in the middle, or the one at the edge?

    are you using a hygrometer as well?

    or just the wells?

    i think my instructions said to fill them all up, middle and sides.

    okay, thanks! i just candled them for the last time [​IMG] but all 5 that i know are growing for sure look even darker you can barely see anything in 4 of them [​IMG] the last one still has a lot of light showing through it, but it is definitely moving and throwing a fit in there lol, so i think it's just going to be a bit later than the rest! hopefully not too late though... i want my [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Now!!!

    well i answered my own question i think... went to fill it with water and the outside one has a hole drilled in the Styrofoam in each corner, water came right out... so i guess that one's not meant for water?!?! lol... i hope i did it all right, we'll just have to wait and see i guess.

    Both troughs get water at lock down, and you can copy the instruction manual straight from the hovabator website.
