i have a rubbermaid tub too. I fruited about 7 days ago and i have tons of pins and no problem with dripping onto them. My cakes are sitting on lids and i have perlite in the bottom i mist and fan 3 times a day and have no problems with dripping.

i just use a piece of cardboard to protect the babys when spraying the chamber with water but
if your using perlite ( 2" of perlite and a 1/4 inch of water in the fruiting chamber ) you shouldn't have any reason to hand spray

I suggest keeping your lid clean by wiping it down with alcohol.
Minimum moisture will actually build up.
also try not to use kling-wrap or similar thin plastic.
Even thick plastic works way better.
