What does 70% Humidity 'Look' Like?
Hey, everyone! I'm in the early stages of my paludarium planning and am doing as much research as I can.
I have a 18x18x24 Exo Terra whose bottom portion will be water. The top portion will have a planted background and stream. I am aiming for 60-70% humidity. I live in Texas where the average outdoor humidity is in that range (it swings dramatically, was 35% yesterday, will be 60% Sunday). I assume my house is 10-20% lower on average. The goal is to make a Texas-native vivarium on top and nano tank on bottom. I will, of course, be getting a hygrometer, but I have to build my plans around my target range.
What does a 60-70% humidity paludarium setup look like? How much do moderately planted native plants add to humidity? Is it best to leave the lid as entirely mesh? Replace one portion with glass?
Any insight or advice would be appreciated!
