: What techniques would be recommended to keep the humidity up. It has been a real challenge for me as heat sources dry the cage out. Also what would be a good heat source? I had a custom made melamine chondro cage. It had a fluorescent fixture and a heat lamp. I sprayed the cage like a madman and the humidity gauge read in the upper 90's. But in 2 hours it was in the 50's and dropping fast. I want to get back in chondros but I won't consider it until I come up with a reliable way to provide heat and humidity.

:Thanks,

try adding a heated water source. The hotter the water the higher the humidity. You can also add an aquarium air pump to bubble water in the heated water. If you keep the pump exterior to the enclosure this adds fresh air while further increasing humidity.
