Hi... i know you solved yer problem already- but another way to stop the droplets is to coat the top of your terrarium with vaseline. Apaprently works... there's a *tek* on it here somewhere (I can't remember who came up with the idea in the 1st place; not me though.) Congrats! :)

im glad to hear its going good! for easier towel method just use one big towel though. sometimes small towels get to wet and maybe the tape can soak and slip and boom towels fall on cakes or casings!!! personal experience just needed to add that.

thanks, no problems so far but I've been swapping out the wet towels when fanning so next time I'll only use one. Hurray for Bounty (God I'm such a dork)

and yes Vaseline is completely useless for this purpose, see my original post. Luckily I got rid if it in time and went ahead with the paper towels. *All* cakes are now fruiting and even casings from uncolonized cakes are starting to look good

Tape a piece of foil, a layer of paper towel, plus a piece of cardboard (in that order) to the outside top of your shot gun box. This will prevent moisture accumulation on the inside of your lid.

The explanation is long,and verbos. It has to to with how condensation functions between two environments of disparate temperatures that have come into contact with one another. In this case, warm shotgun box vs slightly cooler room temp.

For the my fellow geeks, here's a link that gives a more complete explanation:
