Hello all!

I'm considering buying a terarrium for when my highland nepenthes grow too large for their current setup, as well as mounting some orchids on bark at the back. I was wondering if this is a suitable terrarium:

If not, any suggestions?

Thanks, Noah

It will be fine, the top is wire mesh so you may want to ge a piece of perspex cut to cover the top and keep some of the humidity in. (you can adjust the gap until it gets to the right level). Of course whatever you get will allways be too small...

Thanks for all the replies! I'm assuming that there's some way of putting a mesh on the back to mount stuff...
Also you say "whatever you get will always be too small". Do you mean the terarrium? I guess it would, but it's really only for when my current plants begin to take up too much space.
