For various reasons I'm fed up with my warming cabinet as an incubator. I was thinking of an upgrade and spotted this, below. I'm unlikely to have more than 20 cells at a time but this seems to be a good option without too much overkill. Because the final payment for my holiday is due next week, £199 doesn't seem a huge sum to pay for something I'll always have. o_O
Any suggestions for how I might better spend my money? My experience with using my warming cabinet is that humidity does matter, though I don't know what to make of David Evans's comment yesterday that he sets his home-made incubator to 90%! I aim for 55%. Maybe humidity doesn't matter after all and any issue I've had is caused by something else.
