Hi! If anyone can give me advice on how to keep humidity in a 3x2x1 glass tank w a screen top it would be appreciated. If I do not constantly spray it down during the day it will drop to 40%. Please help.
Thank you, I am getting a grow tent soon was hoping to wait till she gets a little bigger. She’s only about 14inches rn. Could you recommend some brands of top soil & cypress mulch?Close off as much of the top as you possibly can, avoiding any equipment (plastic wrap and tape will work) - you want as little ventilation as possible barring two small vent holes, which you will likely already have from the places where your lights sit. That will give you a good "base line" on how much extra moisture to add each day. A moisture retaining substrate will help a lot too, peat/sphagnum moss, top soil and cypress mulch blended together usually works nicely. Beyond those first two steps, supplement with misting or humidifiers where needed. Avoid making the substrate soggy. A future enclosure upgrade should be a lot easier to work with since most adult enclosures are much better suited to maintain humidity and heat.

Okay thank you!!Nothing special, the kinds you find at the hardware stores are generally okay . Just be sure they don't have anything added to them (no dyed mulch, or anything with chemicals).
