I made a semi-circular cover, similar in shape/structure to a polytunnel, for a heating mat.

In order to prevent fungal disease, the condensation generated should flow down the sides of the cover rather than on to the seed trays which seems to be the case.

The problem is that when the front cover is removed for watering / inspection, the condensation drips all over the seed trays. This appears to be unavoidable. Has anyone any suggestions on how to prevent this?

There are no vents as such in the plastic as it is not airtight. Does it need additional vents ? If so how could these be created?
