I know th snake mang, and he has a 10gl rubbermaid tote he was planning to use a a terrarium. He said he was going to cut part of the top off and put plexiglass. he was also going to put perlite on the bottom for humidity. His questions are: 1. Does he need to add an extra heat source? 2. How does he mist them (without getting caps wet) and does he need to? Is the perlite enough humidty for them?
BTW he is usin PF Tek 1/2 pint cakes.

1)  If your room temps are not within the optimum fruiting temps, you might want to check into an outside heat source.  Then again you could just raise your thermostat to 73-74.

2)  SWIM uses an inverted sterlite bin (the lid is the floor); when I did cakes (a few months ago) I used perlite and I misted as well, high humidity is your friend.  To mist, I just sprayed the inside of the "lid" (which is actually the bin itself) until I saw tiny water droplets all over it. 

I hope this helps you out, good luck in your endeavors.
Nice use of mang, that made me crack up.  :tongue:

lol, mang is mexican/cuban for man. "What's up mang?"

I misted for the hell of it really. I'm sure the perlite would have been enough, but since cakes like 100% humidity, I figured that I'd give it to them. Also, my bins may not be 100% air tight, so I figured that this would help just in case (I don't have an accurate humidity gauge). I didn't mist everytime that I fanned, only when I deemed that it was necessary.
