Small(er) terrariums
    #530609 - 01/25/02 01:32 AM (15 years, 30 days ago)

I've got 9 jars going right now. 2 GC, 2MB, 3PR and 2TC.

I want small(ish) style terrariums to fit one or two cakes. I previously had one cake in a icecream bucket with perlite humidification and it worked really well, but, I ony tried it with the GC strain. I want to case some of the two jar strains in, hopeful, ice cream buckets. Any other ideas on small terrariums?

It wont do casings, but will do a single cake (poor man's style). Get yerself a 44oz Super Big Gulp Twist 'n' Go cup. Fill the part that fits in your car's cup holder with damp perlite and set the cake on top of that. Use a sock to keep light from coming in the sides of the cup.

I've used small plastic hamster tanks that are quite cheap, small and work well.

The real big Gatoraid bottles kick ass for 1or2 cakes instead of the coke 2 liters. They even have a place spaced out where to cut them. You will know what i'm talking about when you see one. It seems to be more air tight than a 2 liter as well.

Walmart has some real cool plastic fish bowls
that are shaped like a volleyball. Run a bubbler through
a pint jar as done in the thread "mini".
Check out that thread, really cool!

A smal rubbermaid is cheap. You can get one for under $3, and it will allow better air exchange than a soda bottle. Soda bottle's work but they are a pain for airexchange. A small rubbermaid is usually cheaper than a fish tank.

The fish bowl I mentioned is $2.96. A styrofoam cooler is
only 5 bucks. And a large enough rubbermaid to do a dozen
cakes is $3.44 (wal-mart). There are several different ways
you can go. The small rubbermaid would probably come in
handy when you move up to casings. I've also had success
casing one or two cakes in a cut off bottom of a 2-litre
bottle. Peace!
