I have a picture plant that I planted in a terrarium and it did really well as I didn't know how tall they could getA fishbowl would work and you could use a carbide tipped drill bit specifically for glass cutting.

I understand the desire for nice pots but I would look at regular, but nice looking plastic pots…maybe well -glazed ceramic pots.

White plastic with a square top and straight sides so they stack tightly together, tall, plastic. Burn a few holes in the bottom for drainage.I use about three inches of the bottom of a gallon milk jug for a “tray” under a pot of D. capillaris. It has held up well this summer but does grow some healthy algae in it.
That would be awesome.
Actually, maybe I'll grab a few plastic milk containers and try that.

Super cheap, white exterior, almost no wasted root space.Those bags have some excellent reviews on Amazon. It makes sense, too, that the bags positioned touching their neighbor bag would have better insulation than a 1/8" thick styrofoam cups...lots of surrounding "airy" mass except for the outer sides of the outside bags, those might get a bit warm or cold depending on ambient conditions, sunlight hitting them, whatever.
Interestingly, I've also found that as long as the bags are cheek-to-cheek they insulate better than styrofoam containers.
Here's some that I'm considering getting for individual venus flytraps: Hydro Crunch D94002111-100PC 1/2 Gal. B&W PE Grow Bag Set (100-Pack), Black/White
These would be for my outdoor ebb-and-flow table. They have the added benefit that the more space is occupied on the watering table, the more efficient it becomes and the less water is needed to water the plants.
