    Woo Hoo, just got a 30g bow front tank from a buddy of mine. Now to just figure out what to do with it. I got some cp's sitting in there right now just in some elevated pots, but I gotta do something with the terrarium. So now I have to decide if I want to actually plant anything in the tank or just to keep potted cp's in there? Just happy that I got such a large tank for nothing.
    I consider every plant hardy until I kill it

    First thing I would do is see about getting a pc fan installed to prevent mold.

    the only thing with potted terrariums is that they are really always that nice to look at. Looks more like a white trash back yark attempt at a terrarium. I need to get some pots that I can spruce up to at least make it more pleasing to look at than looking at old cottage cheese and sour cream containers turned upside down for pot elevation.

    I have to chuckle... yes, terrariums are a nice aesthetic thing,, but tne you mentioned "old cottage cheese container" and then it kinda brings it back to "ghetto". and that reminds me of mine, with old yogurt containers:

    4 Inch and 3.5 Inch Pots

    You can get alot of Square 4 inch or 3.5 inch pots for youre terrium. I know ITs not good for Larger Carnivorous plants But For sundews utrics and pings, its great. And The fact that youre terrium is bow front, that might not help much. But It would give you spots to water.

    Cheers
