abcat, you are actually right about needing some strong lights if i were to be growing cps in the tank. Most likely the bottom will be for shade loving ferns, jewel orchids and the like.
The only cp's i think i'm going to try are some pings that will be grown near the top so they will get the light they need.
I'm now starting to purchase and collect the plants i want in the terrarium. Just purchased some mini begonias and some gesneriads.
Hope to start planting next weekend?!
