You can cut strips of ceder and use fishing wire to hold them together. The boxes only last about a year and a half or so depending on the type fo wood, weight of the plant. gaps about 0.5 inches are approprate.
Plastic orchid baskets last a lot longer, although they're not as good looking.
Theres lots of places to buy them if you want to buy them. If you want to make them, I found it easiest to buy a sheet of lattice and take it apart. Use industrial stainless staples.

Forgive me for sounding totally ignorant, however, what do you line these baskets with to stop the planting medium from falling out?
You'd use LFS or at least surround your medium with LFS. Orchid bark would probably hold too.
I was thinking I'd have to purchase an aquatic plant basket to place within the other style baskets to hold it all together. Either that or some sort of a panty hose liner for lack of a better description. *We practiced with orchid bark/horticultural charcoal and pieces of it were falling out. We don't have a Nepenthes yet but we will very soon. Speaking of aquatic plant baskets, why not just use those?
I have those too... I just think the wooden boxes look cool. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
I have seen the orchid wooden boxes you are talking about at many Lowes stores. Most likey large garden centers would have them as well.

Sort of off topic but does anyone recall those telescoping poles that used to be able to be used to showcase hanging plants? I had one once for ferns back in the days of macramé. *Bet those are still available. *One of those might look really nice with hanging baskets filled with Neps that had hanging traps. I suppose they even make them to accommodate newer homes that have the higher, vaulted, and cathedral ceilings.
