should be fine, as long as its closed off so nothing can get in and no humidity can get out. I would use a 3 liter though, give the little guys some room to stretch out. The first time I tried to grow (I was given a colonized cake as a tip for a tattoo years ago), I just put the cake under a clear bowl, no perlite, no fanning, no nothing. Mushies still grew. As long as there are no contams, the damb things will grow just about anywhere. Of course a terrarium is pretty cheap and simple to construct, but with one cake, no worries. hope this helps.

no I would fan 4-5 times a day, less is fine though. Once cakes are fully colonized they are pretty good at fighting off contams. As long as there isnt constant exposure to dirty air youll be fine. Dust is bad, try not to let any get in there. and some moist vermiculite under and on top of your cake too, gives it some exra moisture. Just wet the verm. then microwave it for 5-8 mins on high, let cool, and you should be good to go. Also the concensus seems to be that dunking after the first flush is a good idea, though there are mixed opinions on whether to dunk b4 the first flush. From my first real grow I found that cakes alowed to pin in the jar a little bit did the best. I only did one set of cakes though, 16 in total. Others say to birth after about 3 days from complete colonization. Results vary from person to person on these types of details. Remember most of this info is from posts and less from experience, I am just a newbie too. Though so far my ventures have been quite succesful.
