    I am in Atlanta, where it is pretty/very humid. I just ordered 2 new Hova 1588's. What should my humidity be on day 1-17 and lockdown be?

    Thank you.

    You're going to get all sorts of recommendations, all varied.

    Here in Florida I keep my humidity at about 50% from days 1-18 then between 60-65% for the final three.
