I thought one of these would be good for one big round flat cake. Or whatever. From watching my Hygrometer it doesn't seem hard to achieve 100% humidity by simply misting the insides of the plastic occasionally. Dripping isn't a problem for me if the temp. is consistent in the room. The plastic tops have a tab that when mated makes a good place for a piece of duct tape. A piece of tape opposite secures the tops from shifting.
I was able to make a "Poor man's terrarium" top by putting a glass bowl in the top for wieght and holding it over a hot electric stove element. As you carefully heat the plastic the bowl pushes the plastic down. If one could find a "poor mans terrarium" top shape in a household item of build one you could thermoform a perfect functioning top. The thermoformed top warped some, around 1/4" on opposite sides from holding it on opposite sides while heating. A heat gun could be used to relax the warp on a counter top. Lids are $1 at a nearby Albertsons grocery.terrariumopen terrariumthermoform

That should actually be okay for spawned casings like straw, as they do not need 100% Rh

Peace,

Get the right sized Pie Pan in there and you will take maximum advantage of the available surface area

I am "testing" one w/ flat cake. Thought it might be a quick fix for most of us broke people. Also disposable if need be as opposed to glass.

I like those containers. Use a circular pie pan and wax the top and water will run off it better. I would also find some kind of gasket material so it is better sealed. Use some tape on the back to make a hinge. Some ideas.
