How are you providing the humidity to the terrarium?

Your terrarium doesnt have to be airtight, it just shouldnt have huge gaps in it so contaminations can occur. Especially when using and airpump for humidification you want to not have an airtight tub/fruiting chamber so your air has a place to go.

>if you see the walls of your terrarium has lost of mositure on them.

are you talking about condensation here? Cause thats not a sign of humidity. So i take it your not.

Im just saying

if you'd like you can wet the edges and put a piece of saran wrap over it, that will creat an airtight seal :smile:

condensation is when hot air meets cold air(forums water droplets).
the temp in the grow chamber is or should be the same as the room temp thus no condensation will forum.himidity is how much water is in the air and if the water in the air it builds up and becomes bigger water droplets the higher the humidity gets.

So i take it your not.
