    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?

    endparenthesis,
    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.

    They are typically available many places as an "Orchid Basket". Some orchids don't need anything except to be placed bare root into the basket, with a Nep as mentioned you would line with LFS.

    I use them for my neps in my terrarium in my dorm room. it is actually easier to keep them watered on the tray system I find as you just need to put enough water in the tray to cover the wood which then absorbs the water and then the soil absorbs it from the wood. Or at least that is how it is set up for me.
