Read thoroughly but... (terrarium size)
    #2321614 - 02/10/04 04:58 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I got all of my supplies yesterday.

Acquired 12 .5pint jars, the compost stuff, a large rubbermaid container, and essentially everything I need, now I'm good to go.

However, I was wondering whether the size of the container I bought will be too big for my twelve little half a pint cakes. The container holds 58 quarts (14.5 gallons I believe) and it's 11" x 19" x 11".

I'm afraid it will be too big to keep the optimum humidity.

Does anyone know?

I would say the bigger the better, as if you
decide to expand, you wont need a larger fruiting chamber, also
the larger the more air inside, = fresher air for longer.
Humiderty is quite easy to keep high with an air pump and stone
in water, pumping air into it.

Its not too big, you gotta consider the growth coming off is gonna take up alot of room inbetween cakes. Its a good size for 12 cakes depending on what your using for humidity. A ultrasonic humidifier would be perfect for your setup.
