    I find that the best thing to fight mildew is very good insulation. In the small place where I cook, sleep and run Johnny's humidifier, the only place I get mildew is around the balcony doors, where the insulation is bad. And they are farther from the humidifier than the walls or ceiling.

    If the walls are well insulated, they are not cold and so the humidity cannot condense into water.
    The floor has bad insulation, so I got mildew on the carpets and mattress.

    Maybe it is the same with your walls.

    That makes sense, Mariana. Thanks!

    In my case, Darwin does not spend hours at 100% humidity in the bath anymore, so I do not have trouble with mildew. His basking spot in the bedroom has 2 humidifiers, but the only place I get condensation is the window (there are always fresh towels there).
    My name is Stephen, and I have a male green iguana named Darwin (since March 17th, 2016).

    It is what branches translate from Russian as. There are several words that translate in an unusual way.

    I had no idea that this translation was wrong.
    Ann is right. Sometimes our Russian word has a different meaning in English.
    I always thought that snags are what's right.
