I have no problem with humidity in fact I need a decent sized opening so
that there is not constant condensation inside the terrarium. Any kind
of lid or even a tapering opening like on a traditional goldfish bowl
allows a very humid microclimate to develop. My first efforts were
simply take-away containers or coffee jars with cling film over the top
and a few holes punched in it. Having said that the humidity here is so
high anyway I've had crypts come up in my bog garden from the aquarium
gravel I used as mulch so YMMV.
Well, I'm in Denver CO, where the humidity is always extremely low,
and I've seen the exact same thing as you. I've even experimented
with using fans to blow air inside the tank toward the front glass
in an effort to reduce the fogging.
As long as the tank is covered and has some water in it, the
humidity level will be plenty high inside. I've got mosses
(java moss and christmas moss), several anubias, several crypts,
and Hydrocotyle leucocephala all growing great above the
water in my paludarium.
