Try to be more specific regarding your set up. It's hard to say what is happening because you didn't give very good details. "Plastic tarp type shit"????

i have a rubbermaid container that has a plastic sheet streched over the top. there is no water droplets on it, just a condensation look like a really cold can of beer or pop. i just took the plastic off and glued the lid on and cut a hole and but sum saran wrap over it. i'll respond back in a few hours to se if thats werkin any better, but with my luck i doubt it...

I'm using perlite humidification in a pretty small terrarium. At first I didnt notice any condensation on the walls untill I ran my fingers over it. I gave it a nice spray with the spray bottle and it left a nice covering of dense water droplets. They have stayed there throught my fruiting stage (2 weeks) so I tend to believe my humidity levels is just fine. Normally if your perlite is wet (enough) then you will have humidity of 92%+ in a sealed container. It doesnt even have to be completly air tight.
