No fanning for 36 hrs
    #820011 - 08/16/02 10:34 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

I HAVE to leave my guys unattended for about 36 hrs starting tomorrow. I have four, four cake casings in pearlite humidified terrariums.. PF Stroph & PFC's, cased with sterilized organic compost. Most of them are just starting to pin and look very healthy. I have been fanning 3-5 times a day religiously. Will they be ok without fanning for about a day and a half since I have to take an emergency road trip and have no one to keep an eye on them? Thanks.



This entire post is a lie.

I suggest setting up a method of passive air exchange before you go or else you may come home to multiple aborts. The easiest way to do passive air exchange is (if you're using plastic tubs) drill 1/8" holes 1" from the top, all around the tub 2" apart from each other.

Couldn't I just leave the lid ajar then? In a clean room... Maybe mist em good before I go?

Nope, I've tried that... Humidity drops drastically.

I thought that leaving the (clean) lid on upside down or something might be a solution. Who knows..? I really have no choice but to try something, though.

Do what you want, but I strongly suggest drilling those holes. You can tape 'em uo if you want when you get back... All my terrariums have 'em drilled though, so I can fan or not fan whenever I feel like it.

I've gotta agree with TripMeister, my parrot's terrarium has 1/8" holes down both sides of the lid so when he gets lazy it doesn't effect the air exchange.

Well, It's a done deal now. I hope it works.
