question about humidity

Hello all, I am having trouble keeping humidity in my cages so i decided to cover 3 sides with plastic. I know chams also need good ventilation so here is my question. I am covering the full backside for sure, but i wanted to only cover part of the sides. Should i leave the bottom or the top of the sides open for ventilation? Any feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks.

I loosely taped shower liners to the sides of my cages so there are still gaps for air flow. Plus the top and front are open so that really helps. I haven't noticed any stagnant or stale air, it appears to not interfere too much with air flow overall. The upper half has better air flow than the bottom half since the top is still open.

I did something similar to what syn posted. Got a teardrop Crane humidifer and some PVC piping to dump it straight into two of my cages - works really well! Nice cool fog rolls in and fills up the bottom part of the cages. My boys like to sit in it now that it's warmer outside.
