I have a large viv (6ft heigh x 4ft wide x 2ft deep) for my BCC and I am running a bit low on humidity at 50%.

There is a very large water bowl/bath in the viv and I spray a couple of times daily. There are only two vents either end of the viv top and bottom.

Her last shed was rather poor and the humidity obviously needs to be raised. Temp is constant and correct.

Any ideas please?

Get the water closer to heat?
Have a smaller water source by the heat? (I do this with my rainbow)

Maplin sells mini-foggers pretty cheap?

Not an option I have a celing ceramic and a wall mounted tubular (water bowl is as close as I can get it to that)

Did think anout a small bowl with a heat mat under it but would prefer not to have three heatsources going into the viv.

id change the substrate from newspaper to orchid bark..
same as that
It holds the humidity really well, spraying with warm water daily, using a plant sprayer, will help too
Tbh 50% isn't too bad during normal times, just increase it during a shed.
