    I have searched in vain for them square pots and would love to know where to get them. However, I do not particularly like those blacks ones that appear to come with some of the carnivorous plant that you can buy from the gardens. A pot with a colour other than black would be nice.

    I found some black square pots at some nursery at Hougang. Got lots of sizes available as well.

    Im really lucky to get everything to fit perfectly , the terrarium fitted perfectly in my growing shelves, the trays fitted perfectly in my terrarium and the pots fitted perfectly the trays!

    I bought my new tank for $20 at rainbow aquarium next to nature aquarium but i only saw one, the uncle might order another one though, I bought it because it had a longer height (4inch) thats why ill get a larger surface area when it is turned on its side (thanks Tamlin for this idea). now the measurements (while on its side) is 18' x 24' x 12' BxLxH it is great! it fits my growing area perfectly.

    These are the locations and prices:
    (u guys probably won't go there...I got all of them from 3 different faraway parts of singapore)

    the pots are black but they are selling for 20cents (3') the 4' pots are selling for 30 cents. the shop is located around pasir ris farmway at the aqua fauna center and they have free shuttles from White sand going there. I dropped by there to look at fish (I went to visit my old house which was at pasir ris) and found this shop, the owner is Terresa Yeo ditributor of "Sea monkeys" , has an amazing herb garden and hydroponics station and has a whole bee colony for making honey, if you go don't forget to ask her for a visit in the nursery, its amazing. You can call her at 65827768 or email at jafterdi@singnet.com.sg , she also sells cheap perlite and vermiculent and pots and trays. She also has black trays which fits 12 3" pots but it has holes at the bottom so u can't store water on it. I bought 2 of them and 24 pots and tried to seal the hole with silicon but it didn't work, i was disapponted until i saw two rectangular blue trays that fitted 8 square pots exactlly. it was my brother's (Jason Wong on this forums) and i traded it with him. The blue trays were from Daiso at IMM selling for $2 , there are about 4 sizes of blue rectangular trays , take the largest one. If u r doing a similar setup to mine, buy 3 blue trays as it fits the terrarium perfectly.

    how lucky am I? everything in this terrarium was because of coincidence.

    ill post some pics below
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    Sea monkeys?! Wow.. are these the real commercial ones or brine shrimp? My experience with brine shrimp (eggs) is that they die very soon after birth; the commercial sea monkeys, which used to be available at Toys R Us, could live really long and get really huge.

    Mt new terrarium still under construction, i only have 2 blue trays and 3 can fit in the terarium, also i forgot to add to cover up the opening I bought a a plastic sheet and cut it to size so that i can flop it up and down when i want to attend to my plants, I cut 2 holes for air circulation, one on the top right hand corner for hot air to exit and one on the bottom left hand corner for cool air to enter. The holes are not in this pic because the plastic is flopped up


    This is my growing shelve, top is neps, middle is new terrarium, bottom is old terrarium

    That's a nice looking terrarium, wezx! I wanted one as well, but the cost of the lights really put me off. So my present "terrarium" (a fish tank) is lighted by the sun The plants don't seem to mind!
