    Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia Emersed Flower

    Found a nice little surprise this morning, good thing I just happened to look at the right place or I would have completely missed it.

    Due to where it is located this is the only angle possible to take a pic of.

    Here is a full tank photo as of this afternoon. Spring/fall are the worst times to take photos for me as I just finished heavily pruning anything I could so they have room to grow over the winter/summer months.

    So what's in there? I see moss, ferns, African violets, orchids, crypts, little vines . . .

    Any animal life or strictly plants?

    It may be recently pruned, but it's still beautiful! Thanks for posting the photo!

    No animal life, probably alot of bug life due to the amount of decaying plant matter. These types of things are more of a 5-10 year project than short term. Nothing fast growing in there and about 50 mini/micro orchids that will take many many many years to fill in. I've been adding in more mini/micro ferns but I've been very careful to keep everything small. I'm just now seeing the first signs of live sphagnum moss growing in some areas.

    Very nice terrarium. I see you live in TX so you may not have a winter heating problem. But I am in NJ and I let my house get down to 62 F in winter at night. Is there a way to heat terrariums?
