Your temp in your fruiting chamber is to high, especially for cubs. 70-75 degrees farenhiet are optimum for the fruiting chamber. 84-86 degrees is the perfect temprature for the pre fruiting incubation growth stage. Other than that it looks great. Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!

I love your set up. One thing might make it better. If you were to buy another air pump that would suck the air out using your u-shape tube as the conduit. or just use a vacuum cleaner to lightly suck the CO2 out. I wouldn't suggest connecting the vacuum cleaner directly up to it because you would suck out all the perlite. But putting a fine mess screen on the end of your u-shape tube would prevent the perlite from being sucked up.

The terrarium is air tight, so the only way for air to get in is thru the fish tank pump, and only way for air to get out is thru the u-shaped exhaust.

I have considered adding another air pump to increase air flow inside terrarium, but not sure if I need it yet.

Trying to figure out a way to measure how often the air is exchanged in the terraium, but not sure how yet... Any ideas?

instead of using your fish bubbler to push filtered air into your chamber use it to suck air out through your u-shape tube. Where the pump was before put instead a filter patch or some other form of filter to filter the air that will replace what is suck out from the other end.
