contams in the terrarium?
    #1859812 - 08/28/03 06:37 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

so now that my friend's casing has growing fruits (hooray!), she has been having trouble finding a good way to lower humidity in her tupperware bin. cutting some holes in the upper walls seemed to do the trick, but now she's worried about the casing getting contaminated. i suggested covering the holes with tyvek, but that would again increase the RH. i'm sure zillions of contams are introduced every time she fans the thing. so is it necessary to cover the holes, or should she just leave them open to the elements?

i'd leave the holes uncovered. you can't expect to keep contamination out for ever with a casing especially outside of a clean lab environment.

I believe tyvek is breathable?
