    Oh good! I have one of those stores nearby, and I can think of some uses for containers like those. Thanks.

    Btw it's a beautiful setup. Consider the idea stolen. I had a few leaf pulls that I was going to get rid of. I will make a few of these instead.

    What's the wattage on that CFL and how long do you leave it on for? I would have been worried about overheating, but it's obviously not been an issue!

    Thanks all. The box is from a store called solutions. Its a store similar to Bed Bath & Beyond. There are a variety of acrylic boxes used as trophy cases. This is s 4" wide box. The CFL is a 26watt sunblaster brand full spectrum bulb. I will next order one of those DIY LED kits and build a replacement light fixture that is smaller.

    I've bought containers like that at Tap Plastics in Northern CA. Used a couple of the bottoms for water trays that hang and was planning on making terrariums out of the others!

    You did a great job!!!

    Where do you get red sphagnum? I've never seen it before!
