    Here you go:

    First, push the capslock button so the light on your keyboard is "off."

    Second, click the search button in the top right of the screen and type in "terrarium pics." There are two posts on the first page and then on the second page the top four posts listed are "terrarium pics" or some variation of that.

    Third, you could try a fan to get some air movement.

    Raise the plants slightly on eggcrate, fill the bottom with a few gallons of water, and get a small submersible water heater. This keeps the nighttime temps within range as well.
