Why not try it and find out? I would bet that it would hold for quite a while, provided no water gathers there. Make sure to press it on really good, espeacially around the edges of the tape.

Duct/duck tape was originally designed for use of the US military and due to its water-resistant properties was promptly named 'duck' tape. Just some useless trivia, but should indicate that it'll last long enough for the needs of your shrooms.

i thought "duck" tape came about cuz of the sound it makes when you pull some off the roll.

I was wondering why they called it 'duck' tape... I mean how often do you need to tape up a duck?


BTW humidity IS water

I thought it was Duct Tape. What ever the name, I know you can fix anything with it. My buddy rolled his ankle last week while we were camping and it made for a pretty good brace.

Oh I had another friend who went as Duct Tape Man for Halloween one year. He wrapped himself with about 4 or 5 rolls of the stuff. He won 1st place in a contest which put $250 in his pocket.

duct tape is used on ducts, i.e. sections of furnace/ac pipes used to move heated/chilled air thru buildings.

But duck tape, the brand, is a direct decendent of technology used by the us millitary on airplanes.

Anyway, ime duct tape holds much longer in high humidity environments if it is allowed to cure for a day or two at ambient humidities before being exposed to the high humidity of a terrerium.

Hip, that had always been my thinking. But one day, in boredom, I stumbled over http://www.ducttapeguys.com/
Now I've seen the light. All praise duck/duct tape (hey, if you're a true believer we don't care what you call it).
