Just changing the tape will not do, you've got to clean the whole terrarium with bleach and change the perlite too.

Do you really want to bother taking the risk? You never know, you could be cultivating a new species of genetically engineered nerve toxin. Well, maybe not that bad, but you get the drift.

i understand and i am going to replace the tape and seran paper but my biggest concern was the oerlite.. I remember once someone saying that perlite could be reused if just cleaned out but i am not for sure...
thanks!

I?d sterilize perlite before reusing and wipe all surfaces in terrarium with bleach. This will stop stuff from growing.

You can clean the perlite. I normally dunk it with a bleach:water mix for several hours, a bucket or something will do. Then i have to wash it again with tap water very well, i think the word is to "rinse". Finally, you can put it inside the oven to dry a little and to break up the bleach but if you rinse it very well you don't have to do this.

I believe it is.

I've heard of people baking the perlite and then re-useing it. Bleach would probably be quicker and less messy.
