    How are folks determining humidity in their fish tanks / terraria? Is there a small gauge that can be place in a CP set up?

    You could use a hygrometer (AKA humidity meter) but I don't think it's necessary to worry about humidity inside a terrarium unless it's in direct sunlight.

    well, depending on what kind of plant you have, humidity can be a big factor. Research what climate your flora prefer and modulate the humidity accordingly. I raise some orchids that will grow just fine in 40-60 humidity, but will not flower without at least 80% humidity. Now granted the plant is healthy, but whats the point of growing orchids if they dont bloom?

    Hygrometer can be purchased at Wally World for $2.97, .50 at the end of the winter.
