I have a large (14 inch) bowl-type planter that I am planning on putting 9 different varieties of episcia in. I plan to use LFS around the edges to help with humidity, but I suspect that they will need something more than that.

Any ideas/suggestions of what I can use as a dome for the planter?

Thanks in advance...

You can either use a piece of cut saran wrap...that works well...also, go to a website called ...I have to find all of begoniacrazii threads about this...I even ordered some...they are for the restaurant supplies...put two half circle clear plastic big salad bowls together...drill a hole in the top part and add a little porcelain or wood knob...let me see if i can find her threads.

I gave up trying to do it by the method above. I do have a couple of pots that I have used the fish bowl type glass bowls that you can find in Wal-Mart, etc... and I invert them over the pot to make an instant terrarium. It's cheap and works great!
