In Reply to: Breeding: What humidity % should be used in incubator? posted by Gecko2525 on October 15, 2002 at 14:07:28:

Ignore the humidity gauge, it will only mess you up. When you make your vermic/water mixture use a 1:1 ratio by WEIGHT. Then add your eggs. Weigh the container again after eggs have been added. MARK THAT WEIGHT ON THE CONTAINER. Depending on weither you use an open or closed container (IE holes drilled in it or not) you'll want to weigh it about once a week and give it an air exchange (open the container for a few seconds) if the weight has droped any add water to bring it back to what the first measurement was. DO NOT MIST OR WATER THE EGGS DIRECTLY. This should keep your humidity at a pretty good level. Hope this helps!
