Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I believe the air inside my little incubation bucket was about 70% humidty. the little digital meter I used in there isnt perfect, so I'd say any reading it gives me is plus or minus 5%. I mostly had it in there just to see the temperature (the thing measures both, including highs and lows over time, so I was making sure the temperature remained relatively constant overnight). Also, it wasnt resting right on the medium, but was stuck to the side of the container, a centemetre or so above the vermiculite medium. I suspect it would have been a much higher humidity reading if it were actually on the vermiculite medium. I honestly dont know what the best humidity level is. I mostly went with the "pinch test" for determining if the vermiculight was moist enough. If I took a palmfull of the medium, it felt wet but I couldnt squeeze out drips. the only time I felt I had to add moisture was after the lid was accidentally left partially open for a couple days.
I asked you if you measured humidty because I was curious, wondering if maybe it was too damp or too dry, without really knowing what levels equal too much of anything. Sorry I'm not more help. Hopefully someone else will have more useful comments.
