    wood is stronger, and more affordable.

    I agree. I would make it wood with a plexi front for viewing. It will be much cheaper and more energy efficient.

    you can cover parts of the cage with plastic or folded towels. I used a shower curtain for some of my cages - they are cheap, and readily available. That will help cut down on how much humidity is leaking out.

    Get a mister!!!! and a moss bowl. I don't really like that kind of substrate you have, holds too much moisture underneath it and causes molding. repti carpet is better. and they can get mites from those natural substrates.

    Repti-carpet does not do anything for humidity - while it is convenient and sanitary, I would not advise using it for humidity-loving herps. It's great for quarantine, nursery tanks, and herps that do not require high levels of humidity.

    I agree. Carpet is worthless for humidity.
    As for mites, if you are shopping in a store that has them there, anything you buy there can bring them in. Even YOU!
    I have been using wood substrates for many years without a problem.
