Depends on the size of the terrarium. From what i've read, if you case an entire 18 gallon rubbermaid, the casing layer provides pretty much all the humidity u need. But if you are doing a smaller casing inside a larger terrarium, you may want to look into some form of humidification. In my friends martha setup, he has a baking pan with moist perlite at the bottom and this helps with keeping the humidity up. you want the rh to be 75% or above with casings i believe

ok, I am doing the casing in some tupperware dealies. I got a ultra sonic running into 2 large Rubbermaid fruiting chambers with a temp of 71 and the humidity is around at 80-85 but i can increase that.. I was planning on just setting the cased tupperware containers inside the large rubbermaid terriarums with no perlite or anything just the ultrasonic moving moist air in and co2 out. Ive never done this so Im not sure if this would be a good approach to the rye grow

should i expect a drop in moisture once i put the cased tupperwares in the fruiting chamber and is a flowing mist going to hurt the shrooms?

No, if anything the humidity will increase when you put in the tupperware and u will have to decide whether or not u need the ultrasonic. You dont want a constant mist on your casing layer. The whole point is that the casing layer provides the moisture. You may have to mist while it is colonizing to keep it looking moist, but once you have mycelium poking through, excessive misting can cause overlay.
