So i have a few questions about lowering the humidity , in my terrariums .
I've noticed in several posts warnings about starting molds, fungi, plant diseases , and other problems with too much humidity in the enclosed spaces a terrarium creates.
I'm thinking on removing the fogger altogether, now that the misting system is in place and seems to be working well.
The problem is that over the past few days , when I've tried simply turning the fogger off, my humidity drops to the 40 percent range, even with the mister going on 4 times a day at about 3 hour intervals for 1 min duration, after the lights are on, and about 1 1/2 hours before they go off.
I have fairly good air movement via a tube from my worthless humidifier (puts out nothing but air)
very little humidity.
If the terrarium is fairly sealed, wouldn't the trapped humidity be enough to keep the plants happy? The heliamphoras are in the mists direct path, so they will get plenty water and not go dry, in fact I'm pretty sure nothing will go dry. And if they seem a little dry couldn't I add a couple more misting cycles .
This is just an experiment, and I'll consider all advise , especially from those of you who have grown, and are growing successfully in terrariums, and have for a while .
Thank you ever one ,with any advise
