    Can anyone help me how to rise up my humidity percentage? All I did is put water in a cuted 5g milk bottle but I don't know how to rise up the humidity percentage.

    You could, but its all about surface area from which water can evaporate, thus creating humidity. A wet / damp sponge or absorbent towel will work.
