    You're going to want to put a top on that terrarium. I build one out of egg crate and saran wrap. Also, it would be a good idea to hook the fogger up in the terrarium. Since it would be impractical to put it inside, maybe you can take the spray head off and attach a hose and run it through a hole in the top, if you choose the egg crate saran wrap method. If you put a lid on it, it will be like 90% humidity or more at all times and the Neps will go nuts.

    Get a fogger. But make sure you have a fan to dissipate the fog into the air better.

    I built a hose for it I have some egg crate from frag racks so I will do that! What about it over heating? I can get my room pretty cold so I think that will help! and what about air movement inside?

    So How do I go about this? If it is sealed and in the sun, will a window open with outside temps in the lower 60's help cool it internally? and the humidifier has a hose attachment so it can be used that way. I believe the fan inside the humidifier is strong enough that it will help with circulation inside.

    So I made a frame lid with a hole on top for a straw tube connected to my humidifier
    Temps are perfect all day and the humidity is a constant 90% with a timer hooked up to the humidifier that goes off and on every half hour! (it turns off completely at 9pm to 9am)



    This is temporary as I am going to be making a rack system for my closet once my collections get a goin.
