What is a terrarium?

paul_(z5 MI)January 1, 2013

According to WEbster: a vivarium without standing water

In some competition circles: enclosure containing no more than 10 percent water

However, we aren't so strict. For the purposes of this forum a terr is: any transparent more or less sealed enclosure including desertariums (WITHOUT lids, or with a LOT of air flow!!!), paludariums, vivariums, orchidariums, etc.,
