I use standard greenhouse trays and get the transparent domes that are designed to cover them. The domes come in at least two different heights, so I can get the appropriate size for low rising or high growing plants. I needed to do this once my collection got larger in size. The task of keeping water in them was becoming tedious, to say nothing of getting a good supply of sufficient quality water.
I estimate that the water in the trays lasts about 7 times longer be keeping them covered with the domes, but that depends on how much time I keep the plants covered. Doing this for my pings (and dews, utrics) means that I have to shift plants around from 'low" trays to "higher" trays depending on what is blooming. This has not been a burden since keeping an eye on the show-offs is good care for the plants.
The trays and domes last a long time, as long as handled carefully. My first set is years old.
