I think thats do to the fact that the dome is plastic. Plastic works as a better insulator than glass does. I have noticed that my friend's terarium made from a small aqurarium will have water droplets when the blaket isnt covering it. When covered with the blanket the droplets dont seem to emerge. ' Condensation is usally the result of warm moist air comming into contact with much cooler air (ex: bathroom shower).

I like that simple design. What do ya call it? A Mini Micro-Pod? hehe

Cool little terrarium... Nice work!

Another method for increasing the evaporation rate (condensation), is to incorporate fresh air exchange into the design. Humidity can be acheived with very little evaporation, but this is not ideal for crops. For crops to grow or mature, they need a constant evaporation rate within their enviro or grow space. Unless your ambient temperature is considerably cooler than the heat coming from your terrarium, then you will likely not see any condensation forming on your dome. to go this route, you would need a heat source for your terrarium and a way to control your ambient (surrounding) temp.

However, dialing in the correct balance of avilable humidity within the grow space with the proper fresh air-exchange for the crop, will give you a good steady evaporation rate that will really boost your crops performance considerably.

Keep up the good work!;)

One thing that I just noticed. You might want to raise the humitidy gauge a little above the perlite. It's so close to the perlite that it might be efected enough to show a higher humitidy level than the cakes will truly be sitting in.
