Ok guys, I don't mean to sound like a broken record. As much as these questions are similar to my last batch, I'm really getting my plan narrowed down. I really want a good idea about what process I'm gonna take before I start (I know I'll run into shit as I go, but these questions are kinda basic).

After a cake is birthed and cased (simple verm casing), what kind of terrarium could I give it? I know how to make different terrariums, but I'm not sure if a casing needs the same environment as a cake. I've heard of people not even using a terrarium after casing. My only REQUIREMENT is that I can leave the terrarium unattendend for a couple days without much harm. I'm trying to stay away from humidifiers (I'd rather use perlite or hand-mist, though hand-misting couldn't be performed when I'm not there), as I don't know if electricity will be available in my exact growing area. I'd also need something for some gas exchange on the days that I'm not around, unless they can make it a couple days on their own. Really guys, this is where I'm having the greatest difficulty deciding what to do. I'm trying to make my terrarium as simple as possible given the circumstances (first time growing, can't always be there). Since casing supplies more water to the cake, I would think that I could get away with a little more terrarium neglect with a casing, and may be able to just leave it a couple days with perlite and no gas exchange. Or hand-mist and no humidity and no gas exchange for two days. Like I said, I don't know if electricity will be an option, so humidfiers and bubblers are out for now. If you guys think it's absolutely nessacary that they have humidity and gas exchange on the weekends, I could probably do perlite and bubbler, but I'm not sure how that'll work out, and would rather avoid having to move my setup around if it isn't really that necessary. Thanks guys.

Water content of a casing/cake doesnt matter if you leave them unattended for a while, as you dont really water any of them. Just keep them in high humidity. I've seen lots of pictures of casings in the same setup as cakes i.e. a 10 gallon or more aquarium with wet perlite on the bottom which the casings sit on (in the pan of course, lol dont dump out your casing to have it sit on perlite the way you can do with cakes). I guess this answers your questions? Oh yeah- if you want air transfer you can always get an aquarium pump and lead a hose into the terarium. If you dont use glass then it's pretty easy to put some holes in the bottom to vent CO2, but that may cause some difficulty controling humidity.
