    Office Terrarium Examples

    Hello everyone,

    I'm still digging around here, but I miss my plants while at work as a result I've decided that I need a sundew terrarium here at work. The temperatures are always constant, and I even have a south window that gets light during the day, I'd probably need a hood light. (Sometimes I have to close the blinds due to glare on the monitor)

    So far I'm leaning toward a 10 gallon tank with a nice hood, but maybe a 20. I just feel there'd be too much wasted space in the 20 since the vertical dimension goes too high.

    I'd like to hear input on specific hood lights people use on either of those dimensions. Keep in mind this is an office and it has to look presentable! So while I love home brew setups, it probably can't be used here.

    Also I'm debating how to present them in pots that will make it look good as well, so I'd love to see some pics of any small dew terrariums that might work.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas!

    You can buy hoods with a single T8 in them at Walmart for about $23. Otherwise, I don't know.

    a ten gallon would do well, just make sure it doesn't overheat on the window.

    Use those strip lights there 8 bucks apiece or do a CF hood since those put out lots of light(well the 4 footers are better) for a 10 gallon.

    And pretty cheap, couldn't find an exact lumen output on it though.
