Normal for this time of the year, but if you have to plaster a room without windows, new build, it sets very quick and uneven

I had the dehumidifier and blow heater on and that helped.

When I was using BGypsum finish a couple of months ago, even though it finished in an hour and a half it didn't completely set for about 5 hrs ( change colour) it shouldn't take that long by rights so when it s damp like this it's bound to cause problems

The amount of moisture in the atmosphere should not really make any difference to setting time, skimming will set in the bottom of a bucket of water same time as on wall. Drying and setting not the same thing.
