Re: sealing my terrarium?

I use the 90 something qt sterlite and I just use foam weather stripping. Be sure to put it on the lid, so when you clean your tub, the weatherstripping won't get damaged or contaminated. It works great!!

I think I'm going to try to find some of that foam weather stripping. Thanks for ideas.

I'm not in a desert, but daily ambient humidity is about 31%, which is why I went with the weather stripping. Now I have water beaded up on all sides of terrarium. I have started "cracking" one side open to allow overpreasure force out extra humidity when I case. My digital hygrometer then reads about 92% consistently. With the top sealed it can only be 100% with so much condensation on the sides. Hope this helps. Peace

holy shit, moe's here. hi moe.

warzau, i recommend that since you're using perlite, try it without creating a perfect seal. i imagine the humidity will be high enough. i often crack the lid of my terrarium open an inch or so to help with air exchange, and the humidity is great. perlite almost causes too much humidity.

Hi Chestercopperpot:-)
If I may...what size/brand name weather stripping did you use? I mean...I put on weather stripping all the time (said sarcastically) so this should be a snap!....right:-)????
