    Well i have 2 hydrometers and 2 thermometers in the enclosure both in completely different spots. one is analog and one is digital. I tried to make a more humid area for him but even taking a small containers and adding moss in it then putting that up a bit closer to where he likes to rest. both locations seem to have humidity issues where its to low. I'm experimenting with adding a damp/wet towel ontop of the enclosure now under the bubble wrap and tin foil to see if that helps my situation So far it seems to be slightly working i think unless the hydro meter is broken. In the dark hide area where the digital probe is the humidity is staying between 60 and 70% so far and in the area of where the analog one is the humidity is 50% and below. if i mist they both read almost the same reading but as it stands thats whats going on with my new method that im trying out as a temporary fix. of course he is laying in the more humid area right now so i will assume its working properly.

    Although as i described before i thought of doing this towel thing even if i misted both gages were reading the same none stop and it was dropping pretty low. I'll see if this continues to work or not or if its just that today im some how lucky as the weather in my area isn't as bad as yesterday.

    I will be doing what Elizabeth told me to do tho within the month tho as that seems like a better way to control humidity and such throughout the whole enclosure.

    Hello Buttons ~

    This may represent a change in what you've been doing.

    The digital thermometer's probe or hygrometer's probe needs to be touching a surface area near what it is measuring, NOT hanging in mid air. Does that make sense?

    Yes, definitely!

    Place the probe right on top of Buttons' corkbark!!!

    Alright, I'll move that shortly then. I didn't know it had to touch the surface i thought it had to be hanging a bit. From every video and such i see it's always hanging around. I just figured putting it in the location where he rests at the most would work although as i said ill put it to where it touches the cork bark its self (aka) the top of the cork bark as he sits ontop of there more then anything typically.

    Rest the entire probe on the cork bark, not just the tip of the probe.

    Quick Update with Video & Photo's
    Woke up this morning to turn his light on, decided to take him out for a few minutes he was so active and happy or well seemed happy. He kept walking up to my face and trying to lick my nose lol. Was absolutely adorable. Anywhooo I put him back in after misting it up because i don't notice him really drinking from the water sources he has also i never see the water sources go down at all they are always full so i worry a lot about making sure he drinks water properly hence the misting :P But he seems pretty happy overall. No stuck toes nothing today and i haven't found any stuck shed on him since last time and the last time it was only on his foot which i managed to help him with that almost right away. I tend to check him for shed issues and such everytime i take him out as i never see him actually shed so i never can tell when he shed or not haha. He looks like he is growing and of course ill be weighing him again on the weekend to see whats really going on but overall he seems healthy to me.

    **Note: Was having issues uploading images to forums so i used Discord to upload the images then used links from there hope it works**
