Can anyone recommend a hygrometer that will work in high humidity (80%+) I have used a Black Orchid max/min thermometer and hygrometer twice now and they work for a time and then the humidity gets to them and they fail.

Thanks for any comments

Dave

Use an electronic one used for weather stations, you can get the spare transmitters (with digital readout) fairly cheap. They can be destroyed if they get properly wet but i have three or four in the greenhouse and they survive lights sprays without problems.

I use them for my tarantula's, if you go to any exotic animal website or pet shop you should get them fairly easily. I use a dial type to keep humidity around 75% and it cost me £2.50. is sprayed regularly and has gotten water on it no problem. Mine's by reptile one although most of the reptile and amphibian ones are good.
