Is there a humidity level ( % ) that you find works well for your plants, and frogs in general?
Variation throughout the day would be ideal. You can control this with scheduled misting, internal/external air circulation and proper ventilation.
What you definitely do not want is 100% humidity for long periods of time. You can have a short period of 100% humidity after misting, but then you should allow things to 'dry' off a bit before another misting occurs. Humidity fluctuations are great for both frogs and plants. Just try to keep the variation between 65-100%.
Ok thank you. What about the temps? My house is naturally at 72 and unless I upgrade to LED I'm using T5, might add a degree or 2 I would think.
Which frogs are you keeping? I guess that is an important question to address before we continue
Don't have any yet, doing my research first. Leaning towards tinctorius species.
72 is fine. Likely your lights will increase the temperature inside of the vivarium though. I'm not experienced with tincs but I don't think you want to go any higher than 78 with them.
Ok thank you very much for your help!
No problem. Feel free to ask any other questions you may have
