My friend had the same problem a while ago. It sounds like your top casing layer might be too thick. It usually only needs to be about 1/4 " thick. Also, make sure the sides are just as covered with your casing material as the top. They really don't need alot of light to pin so indirect light is fine. I'm not sure what you mean by the water droplets being on the sides. If you meant the sides of the terranium, it's ok if the water's just beading and not running down the sides.

The little mushies grow in the direction of the light. They must be getting light from the sides or bottom of your container if they are growing down. To fix that, block out the light.

You may have overlay on your casings if the mushies are growing out the sides. That means that the top layer has compacted itself because of too much moisture. It could also be due to the layer being too thick in the middle. To prevent this in the future I would air your casings out more and try deep scratching once you first see mycellium poking through.
