that will work as long as the suran wrap doesnt start to sink in and drop water on the cake i use 1.5 inches of perlite in the bottom and .5-.75 inches of water and spray the sides of the pot and lightly mist from far away with a h2o2/h2o mixture of 1:10 this works great for no cantamns also fan often and everything should be okay just watch the temperatures cause if its a clay pot it will trap heat well

I found a perfect little 2-cake tupperware terranium.

I just had my half pint dunked for 18 hors and I birthed them into a pan filled with fine verm. I rolled and patched the cake until it was completly covered in a layer of verm. Then I gave a the cake a real good misting so the verm was fully saturated....Then set the cake on the jar lid and placed in the terranium.

Right now im waiting for my cheap therm/hydro to kick in and give me a reading..I will post a pic in a few minutes.

My suggestion... doesn't matter how much water on the bottom, it's only for convenience of refills. But you need at least an inch of perlite above the water line. I'd keep it higher if you have problem with humidity. You really need at least an inch above water line to keep the humidity pegged high.

Good luck
