Do you case? or are you fruiting from cakes.
My H Is high too, and the same problem occurs with my casings, up about 1/2" on the base of them
i dont worry about it

Try casing. It's not very hard (compared to making the cakes in the first place), and has given me much better results than without.

What I did was:

- Buy zip-loc containers about 6" square
- Put vermiculite in the zip-loc containers
- Moisten them with water, wet but not soggy
- Place the lid on top, but don't seal it
- Nuke them for 8min each
- Let them cool for an hour or so
- Sterilize a knife with 99% alchohol (drug store, only a buck or two)
- Get out your cakes, and cut them into 4 discs or however they will fit best
- Take out half the moist, cool, vermiculite
- Put the cake slices in the dish
- Cover with the vermiculite you took out.
- Put back in terrarium.

Everything listed should cost less than $10 total.

yeah it is not a prob, but if you want to know, if you lower your humidity a tad it should go away
