I guess this is a large terrarium? I would use PVC conduit because of the hose down with chemicals.

Or RMC - especially if the area is misted to moisturize the air. Also, with the dirt floor, AHJ might consider it a damp area. (edited to add, or course, RNC would work too - ask the AHJ)

What kind of structure are you dealing with? Steel posts in concrete footings supporting a open web steel truss roof structure?

Hey thanks for your replys
I got poped on this Job.
I was in a hurry to bid this and put it together as a dry location thinking of it as a pole barn / bug barn. upon completion,the owners and the inspector,maybe family, decided to go with mist,sprinklers and are going to also fill it up with exotic plants.

I wired it with pvc and steel boxes with raised covers.
ahj required all boxes wet location with bubble covers on all.

I live and learn.
