    Ok, Some of you know i've been working on this terarrium for months now and its getting close to done. Heres the thing:

    I have 2 spots left for 2 plants; What should they be?

    So far I have in there:

    Epiphyllum crenatum 'ChiChiCastenango' var. 'Curly Locks'
    Tillandsia cyanea
    Tillandsia neglecta
    Arachnoides ? (Orchid)
    2 X Epidendrum ibaguense "Scarlatta"
    Spider Plant
    Bromeliad 'Fireball'
    Nephrolepsis ? (Fern)
    Nepenthes "Red Leopard" (Almost dead - cat ate it)
    2 X Selliginella kraussiana
    Sedum ? (Creeper/Ground Cover)
    Sedum ? (Creeper/Ground Cover - Different than above)
    Phaelenopsis ? (Hybrid)

    I have 2 spots left for 2 plants; What should they be?


    Thanks
    Joe

    Reading that list makes me think somebody just got a job as an epiphyte specialist. How high is that terrarium? An Epidendrum ibaguense grows tall.

    Its 48gln pentagon. 35" tall and 42" wide.

    I started this tank a few months ago - long before I got this job. Epiphytes are my plants of choice, thats why I originally joined this forum, was to learn about Epi-Neps.

    I have been thinkin of going with a N. ampullaria and maybe a N. gracilis. I am just not terribly interested in Drosera. I still have some more Tillandsia coming my way and a few others but I don't know what they are. My birthday is April 1st and my mom is out in Colo. Springs, CO, she said she was gonna stop by my favorite nursery out there Red Rock Gardens and pick up some different plants for me. Kirk and Jeremy have been there, Jeremy is a regular I beleive - intensely cool place if anyone is ever out there.

    What about a Utric? I don't know if you're trying to find a plant that will fill vertical space, but if you have a place for something low-growing, it would add some nice perspective among the larger flowers.

    The space to fill is about 6square inches, and 2 of them.
