    Petrichor!

    I was thinking the same thing as I was spraying down my Zen terrarium. I love the Earthiness of peat and live Sphagnum, such a refreshing, nostalgic smell.

    Not always the best smell when you have cyanobacteria and mold growing in the water reservior though...

    AHEM...Yeah, I need to get around to cleaning my lowland terrarium, lol. The plants do well though

    I like digging in it with my hands along with the smell of mixing fresh peat

    Yeah, I love that smell, my HL chamber in my basement smells like that..sweet and earthy, loke the woods on a spring day.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
