Sponges, paper towels, trays, a tube into the incubator so that you can add water to keep it at, at least 65% humidity.

What kind of incubator do you have?

Is it me or do sponges dry up really fast? I put one in my brinsea and in the matter of hours it was dried up and the humidity was as if the sponge wasnt even there! What should I do?

Quote:I have the same problem. So what I did was put a sponge underneath one of my ventilation holes and attached a straw to a turkey baster. That way I can stick the straw into the hole and drop water onto the sponge to re-wet it! Works like a charm!

That works well! A little bit goes A LONG way! What do you do at night? Thats like 8 hours of the sponge drying up..... I would have to constantly sprinkle water in there every 2 to 3 hours! lol
