Don't mist him a hour before lights out. I thinks two humidifiers is a little overkill. Is his cage drying out completely before each misting session?

a little water sits at the bottom that doesn't drain out from rain fall but mostly everything is dry before next rain fall

Stagnate water is not good, you should have drainage if you plan to mist that much. Have you read this article about Crested chameleons in the article it states "I spray their enclosures with water 2-3 times a day". Also it says that the humidity can go as low as 60%.

I have read this article and although it can be 60% they should be 80% to 100% ill set rain falls farther apart to clear up stagnate water its mostly water from plants at bottom of cage

Can you describe the enclosure a little more and some pics would be great. Have you covered the sides with a shower curtain? That will help humidity as well.
