i figured maybe a few of those blue ice packs and a fan centered on the outside of the terrarium to keep it cool. thats probably what i'm going to do.

wish me luck!

Recently I have been thinking this over myself and have decided to use some of my old computer cooling stuff.

Here is the intended setup

The Rubbermaid container will have 2 square holes cut out of the bottom.
And a copper plate laid across the bottom.
To the copper there will be 2 Peltier elements.
(These little electronic devices pump heat basically 1 side get real hot and the other gets real cold.
the more you cool the hot side the colder the cold side gets.)
These can get below freezing if water cooled.
But since we are not going for that. I will then attach 2 large heat sinks to the bottom with adjustable fans.
All powered off an old computer power supply. (Which can also be used to fan dry the mushrooms after picking and
before desiccant.

If anyone would like some better plans and schematics let me know I?ll draw some up and post them.
