    Unhappy

    I bought the terrarium from pft. I was wondering if it was supposed to have a cover on top? All mine came with was a black plastic ring that snaps on. I've put plastic wrap over the top and puting the ring on, is that ok or should i leave the top open

    Leave it open! CPs need fresh air, and the terrarium provides enough humidity even with the top open.

    I've thought of taking it off before but i think my plant got used to the high humidity and when ever i left it off the dew evaporated.

    All my tanks are semi-covered. I keep them open enough to let in air so there is some air movement to prevent stagnation and mold.

    I found that with a glass lid can be slid to allow for variation of opening size. My cps do a lot better under glass. It can get dry here and they will not dew unless there is a lid.
