I've currently got two 1 1/2 wk old leopard gecko eggs incubationg in

half buried in vermiculite and not being messed with.  I am concerned
about mold.  Does anyone have any problems like this?  I'd appreciate
any help anyone could give me.

There is a doc on incubating leop and fat tailed gecko eggs at my
website.  If they do develop mold, you can apply an athelete's foot
powder with a cotton-tipped swab to the sites...

You said SEALED.  The eggs do need some oxygen or they will die!  As long
as the vermiculite is damp, but not wet, you should be fine.  You do need
some air flow as the eggs absorb oxygen through their shells.  In a sealed
container the carbon dioxide can build up and smother them.
