1. Condensation has engulfed my friends plexiglass terrarium lid and water droplets are soon to fall. Do they pose a threat to his cakes, which have not even started pinning yet? If so, what to do?
2. Also, he drilled holes in the lid and taped a coffee filter over them for gas exchange. He thinks that the filter is probably soaked by now and that maybe it is not such a good idea for the terrarium to breath through a wet coffee filter. Right now it's on the underside of the lid, but even if he were to move it to the outside of the lid, wouldn't the exposed filter get wet dots over the holes? and wouldn't those wet spots pose a threat of mold?
3. He's wondering if he should just give up on the gas exchange vent (which is aided by an expensive as hell air pump.) If he did, he'd just tape the holes with masking tape(?) give up on the air pump and fan it out about once a day. But there's more, the area where the terrarium is is does not have clean air (attic). Wouldn't this dusty air get fanned in and cause problems?
4. What is meant by indirect light? Does it just mean that none of his cakes would be able to "see" the bulb?

Thank you

Rain Slick, Rain-X or any other "weather repellant" product prevents condensation under lid surfaces (I've also read that petroleum jelly works).
Get some polyfill.
Indirect light is basically any that is not direct sunlight.

Yeah, that would be better than introducing those chemicals.
