    I have an LG incubator with forced air. We have a relatively dry climate here, and I keep a cool mist humidifier in the room with the incubator. I've been able to maintain the humidity so far, but it hard to find the wells to add water with tubing. I even traced them with black Sharpie, but still hard to see. I'm going to add a sponge below the air vent to make it an easier target. Anyways...

    Do any of you turn off the fan during lock down in dry areas to keep the humidity steady? Or leave it on and really work on adding through the vent?

    I have some canning jars...I'll probably do that. How many do you need in the bator?
