Sorry to butt in, but does anyone know of terrestrials that would work for this? I've wanted to have a small jewel or similar growing in moss, but can't find one that wouldn't freak out about the wet, heat, or both

The various tropical jewel orchids might work quite well... they like high humidity and warmth. However, they also tend to need deep shade, which may be difficult to achieve in a terrarium where you're growing under lights that are needed for the epiphytic orchids.

Thanks Herrania and Roberta
Yes, I was thinking about terrestrial precious orchids, but for them it will be excessively wet in my cloche.
