Fan in terrarium?
    #1078466 - 11/23/02 02:38 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I put this computer case fan in my terrarium to circulate the air thats in there and move around the moisture/heat a little. Is this a good idea? Could it dry out my casings/cakes?

If the chamber is completely closed, I'm not sure if the humidity will ruin your fan. Also if the terrarium is closed, there won't be any air exchange, so it seems worthless.

From personal experience, continuous air draft cause the mushrooms' caps to crack and look weird

That looks like a really tall terrarium...is the humidity ok in there? I see perlite, but no drip shield for spraying...are you going with just perlite? That might be fine like that, I just know that I can't keep the humidity up as high as I'd like even with perlite and hands spraying, so I'm wondering if it isn't really low rH in there,

i dont know how much this will help you since you already have the fan in the terrarium, but heres a link on how i hooked up a computer fan so that it wouldnt dry up my cakes.
