Terrarium Questions (1pic)
    #469789 - 11/26/01 06:02 AM (16 years, 23 days ago)

I've got my terrarium setup now, but have a few questions. I tried first using a plastic bag on top of the plastic tub in between the tub and the lid to try and keep moisture in. Is there a more preferred way to keep everything sealed in besides a bag? Not sure if it is really sealing like I had hoped. I wanted to refrain from using tape because it might be hard to remove the lid to fan and check on the fruits if I have to remove and replace tape each time.

Looks like there is definately high humidity in the tub, but I have one of those humidity guages that only seems to go up to about 90%. Does it look like the humidity is high enough from the condensation on the sides in the picture?

Also, I put about 3/4" of water in the bottom of the tub, but looks like most of it has disappeared in the past 2-3 days. Not sure if the perlite has just absorbed more, or if the moisture is indeed escaping. Any ideas?

Thanks again!
(Btw, the mycelium in the 2 jars are really growing fast now. Hopefully won't be too much longer before I can bith them. I'd like to get this all setup by the time they are.) :)

Screw together a simple wood frame slightly larger than your terrarium. Then staple the plastic to it.

You do have a lid right? If you have the lid that is made for that rubbermaid, then the small amount of humidity lost shouldn't be much of a factor and I would worry about it. There doesn't have to be a perfect seal for the terrarium
