I must have messed something up during my last hatch to have gotten as many bloody umbilicals as I did. The humidity level was at 70% the whole time dropping down to 65% a few times when the water level got low.

So, what SHOULD it be?

I shoot for 75% at lockdown and as soon as I see the first pip I throw an extra wet sponge in and try to keep it at 85+% until they're all out.
