    Quote:What is the meter reading because I know you have a small area for change in the humitity ther? How is the weather in the area? Have you had alot of rain? It probably wouldn't hurt to get youself another meter since yours seems unreliable.

    Squirt wire with H2O, DO NOT squirt eggs, with squirt bottle.This wlll only raise humidity for a few hours(About 4).For longer lasting humidity add a pan of H2O. [​IMG]
