    ok! I have built phase one of the incubator process. I basically have a styrafoam cooler with a 15 watt bulb a dish full of water and a sponge and a temp/humd reader. The temperature was pretty easy to stabalize. I poked holes in the sides to get the temp just right. I have it right at 101. I have read conflicting temps. I read 99 if you have a fan and 101.5 if it is a still air. Is this correct? Also, can't seem to get my humidity past 50 %. Just wondering what can I do to up the humidity? I have the dish pretty much full. Should I move it closer to the bulb? farther away? plz help! [​IMG]
