    Can someone remind me what humidity levels should be pre and post lockdown?

    I finally invested in a digital thermometer/hygrometer...so want to keep track now.

    Thanks!!

    I think everybody is different...I've seen most people say 35-45% before lockdown and 65-75% during lockdown...but like I said...I've seen LOTS of different recommendations on here. These are the numbers I've been striving for during my hatch, seems to be the most common!! Good luck!
