    Humidity Problems

    As some of you may know, I recently built a grow shelf. Here's a pic to give you an idea:Closed
    So the problem I'm having is keeping the humidity up. The highest it's been to is 50%, and usually it's at 45%. I have a humidifier on 24/7, and a reservoir, A.K.A. a bowl full of water. My only plant has a baggy over it so it should be okay. Anything I can do? Do I need a better humidifier?

    Would need to see the inside and humidifer to make an accurate assessment. Lights on the inside burn up a lot of the moisture.

    If I were you I would install a small window using acrylic paneling or clear plastic so you can look inside without having to worry about letting out the humidity from opening it. As for raising humidity try putting a large tray of water under or on the bottom rack with a couple air stones to keep it circulating. That can help lower algae growth, raise the humidity, and be used as the tray to keep your plants in, all in one setup. Heli uses an airstone and water tray setup if memory serves.

    What do you mean? I'm already using double mylar layered bubble wrap.

    @Mcnair: I already have a large tray of water, hence the "reservoir." Airstones you say? I'll look into that.
