well i have a regular old terrarium, used for germination... plastic with a clear removable top. bottom plastic also. filled with germination mixture. the top has 3 holes, triangular arrangement. wondering if it would work better if i plugged the holes... holes are hardly large enough to get a pen tip in. it seems the terrarium stays pretty humid, judging by the condensation. holes good bad or nuetral? maybe not a very important question, but the little things really help right?

RE: holes???

Holes allow gas exchange and the opportunity to adjust humidity. I'd use as many as you can while maintaining adequate humidity. Since you can still see condensation, I'd imagine you're fine.
