Drippage pi$$in me off
    #1296638 - 02/10/03 01:59 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Well, all's well with my terrarium, except that Im getting drippage on my cakes! I tried constructing a seran wrap drip sheet by taping a piece to the top of the rubbermaid lid at a slant, but it is worthless. I'd rather not actually build a drip shield, but I heard smearing vaseline or RainX on the top of the lid can prevent large condensation. Has anyone used this with good results? And does RainX work on the type of plastic used for rubbermaid container lids? Any advice would be appreciated.

If your lid is on top and you open it to fan the terrarium, just use a paper towel to dry it off instead of smearing something on your lid. I'd rather have water on my cakes than vaseline!

Tried both of your suggestions, I can't tilt terrarium enough for the purpose, because of room constraints and the fact that the cakes tipped over last time I tried tilting it, and moisture beads form faster than I can wipe them, because I can't wipe the top every couple hours, I go about 12 hours average between checkups on my cakes. I was thinking about putting paper towels on the top, but I think glue would turn soggy and fail, and tape usually doesn't like to stick very well in my terrarium. Plus I really don't want to have to move a bulky drip shield every time I check up on the cakes. What Im trying to say is there anything I can do to the top to prevent large beads of condensation that works and won't hurt my babies?

Vasalein(sp?) causes mutations, or at least that is what I read.

I heard that you can wipe alcohol on the ceiling and then water droplets cant form. I dont know how valid this is however.

McGyver came up with some kind of contraption which connects to the ceiling and then leads to the side or something like that.

Yup, if it comes into direct contact with the cake or fruitbody it causes a mutation called "rosecomb". 

Also, vaseline actually makes water droplets worse.  More water condenses and sticks to the vaseline until they fall.  I just shake my lid out everytime I fan....works for me  :cool:

Who cares if water drops are hitting the cakes? what do you think happens when p cubensis grows wild in a field of cows? Water hits it hard from the rain, i dont care what anybody says just leave it like it is.

Yeah, but, its not like there is exposed mycelium in the wild !

I would say that you probably shouldnt worry too much. Is there a large difference in temperature from the inside of your fruiting chamber, to the ambient air of the room it is sitting in? You might want to try to get the heat up a little in the room.

Otherwise, wipe the top as much as possible. I've heard that wiping with rubbing alcohol on the top lid helps.
