Default hygrotherm & Humidity

I use a reptifogger with a hygrotherm on each of my enclosures. They are very convenient.

of course, it can maintain any humidity level. But since I dont have to work through a drying period of each day between mistings, What would be the perfect humidity to maintain for my darts? (T\B Auratus and Vents)

Currently, I set it at 92%. It auto-clicks on at 89%. Is this too moist for all the time? What is the ultimate % to strive for if I wanted to set it and forget it?

Thanks for any input.

Remember that in the wild frogs go through seasonal changes. Where you have it set now might be great for the wet season, but you'll probably want to adjust it downward a bit to simulate a drier season.
Just a little tip as I used to use a Hygrotherm. Keep the sensor protected from direct moisure. It will go haywire and turn the fogger on constantly, running them till they are dry. At least that's what mine did.

I would think you would want it this moist for the breeding season only. I would slowly dial it back in the fall and dial it up in the spring

Thanks ...yeah, I know about the sensor. And I swapped out for a 2 Liter bottle in case of such an emergency. Atm, my 2 Liters are lasting approx 2 weeks before needing refilled.
Your points of a dry season are noted and why I'm curious to have an actual % that would be a happy medium for most of the year. At what level rH will the frog become less active? 75%?

Dial it back to what exactly? I can set it to any %. What is their natural humidity drop in fall?
