Humidity help

Postby Longfellow777 » Mon Sep 28, 2020 5:24 pm

Hello everyone :D
We are having a bit of a humidity low problem on hot side. We have a HO Flood light about 16 inches from basking spot compliments to the friend responsible for that flood light it works magic and she loves it so thanks bro. But yeah i thought fixing my temp issues would fix the low humididty she gets on the hot side but it hasnt. So i was curious what can i do on top of misting a few times a day? a plant maybe? does anyone have any adivice on this. If a plant will fix my issue what soil and plant etc is safe and pleasent for them?

oh and I have always put her bowl of water in that side she actually drinks from it and dunks herself from time to time. whicgh i hear is a blessing because most dont know they can drink from them? does not seem to help the humidity though. I use probes so i know its pretty accurate. I plan on getting a temp gun next pay check, im starting my dubia breeding so im strapped this week>

Nothing :)

They don't need to have high or even mid level humidity. Naturally, the hot side is going to be less humid than the cool side because of all the heating. That is perfectly fine.

Ok thankyou Brandon i wasnt sure cause some material that said between 30-40 but like i have found out this is my go to my only place for advice ive came across and trust like i do all other sources have steered me wrong. I still cant believe like those zoo med packs and stuff they sell like one i had purchased half the stuff in it is useless and i found out after the fact. I thought i knew the basics its alot to learn lol we got this though! thanks again
