Time to stop growing all my plants in 12% humidity!
I'm aiming for a nice, well-rounded CP terrarium to grow drosera, Nepenthes, and maybe a few Helis. Here's what I have now (pics coming):
- a crappy 30 gallon tank with a crack in it. 14 inches high, 12 inches deep, and 3 feet long. I have it turned on its side at the present
- a crappy, black light hood that I'll probably end up throwing away.
- a LOT of NZ sphagnum. too much.
- A fan
- packing tape!
- aluminum foil... but I'll probably get some mylar.
Time to start machine-gunning questions. My last terrarium was a total joke. I obviously need some kind of cover for the back (or front) of the terrarium. And will I need a thermostat? Also, lighting has proved to be a pain. They just don't make 3 foot shop light fixtures. Should I go with 4 foot bulbs, or 2 foot bulbs but a lot of them? Ahhh, so many questions!
Sorry, its late and I'm really hyper. I'll edit this thread in the morning to make it more coherent...
