    Realize that the VFT will need cold dormancy so it would have to be removed from the setup for a few months per year. You should consider choosing plants with similar cultivation requirements so as to make your life easier and their lives healthier!

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img] Ok well things are going rather slowly for this terrarium at this time, i have everything i need but the stinkin waterfall, which i hope to have within the next 2 weeks and the terrarium completed. But for now i have re-setup and moved around all my VFT's also the Sundews, Butterwort and Bladder worts that i have recived from Jimscott & elgecko. They are now in tanks on a rack shelf that JR threw together for me in my office window, the tanks completly foiled and the side facing the window has foil i can remove or place over on days of no sun. I have 2 compact flourescent 60 watt bulbs over each tank the tops are open and temp is 78% and humidity is 75% im gona set up another tank the same way for starting seeds. Anyways as soon as i get going on the 50gal terrarium i will get pics. I have lots plants commin in within the next week most are gona go in the terraium, im also getting some Tillandsia's for the terrarium as well. I just hate this taking so long but in the long run taking my time and getting everything right will pay off big time.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Ok heres a start, this is the 50gal TruVue arc. tank that we are modifying to the bog/woodland terrarium. I know i know dont look like much but wait till its done.. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] The top is being cut open more and im gona have to foil a few sides inside due to its natural black color sides in the back.

    and this is just a quick drawing plans of how it will look from the top view.

    and a front view plan.

    There will be extra lights at the bog end for the CP's and less at the woodland side due to those tropical plants not needing such strong light. The fogger will be in a sunken dish behind a cork bark slab or piece of wood. Plant pots will have a tray under them and they will be sunk down in more natural setting once the moss is in place and everything. The waterfall will be more on the woodland side. Im gona try to make it so the bog side is higher and closer to the lights and the woodland side lower. I hope this kinda gives ya a better idea of what im gona be doing..

    Can't wait to watch the creation of what looks to be a fantastic terrarium.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] I hear ya there LLeopardGGecko funds for me to are very short and limeted thats why this is taking so long and the fact im waiting on this fountain to come in. Plus i still need to get about 3 "good size" sundews,1 butterwort thats larger than what i curently have and some sort of a small pitcher plant. I have 3 VFT's that are gona go in the bog side as well. My tropicals are already here for me to use and my airplants Tillandsia's are on there way should be here by next week. I got live spag commin in to use as well. Im so excited about this project but its killing me not being able to get it done faster. I shall post more pics as JR and I get things rolling, we will be working on the water uplift tray this week and few other things.
