will this inhibit growth, not of contams. once the tyvek gets wet it can be penetrated by molds and bacteria.
it shouldn't inhibit growth of the myc though.
where is all this condensation coming from in the incubator?
:peace:

Heated water is rising in the sealed incubator and condensing on the top ...

So you are using a single tub with some kind of aquarium heater in water inside the chamber? Have you read anything on the TiT incubator, this would solve your problems with the condensation getting on the jars. There really is no need to humidify your incubator, that comes after you birth.
best of luck

What I have is a large opaque tub with a smaller clear tub on the inside secured. The heater heats the water in between but its condensing on the room and dripping on, I should have got a cover for the inner tub i think.

yes most definitely should have a lid on the inner tub, especially since it is entirely enclosed by the outside tub.
a TiT, they fit together and the heat radiates up into the top tub. thus no moisture to affect the jars.
best of luck
