    New DIY Terrarium

    My terrarium is finally finished
    It's a simple metal rack, covered with radiator foil at the back and right side.
    At the front and left side are sliding lexan sheets.
    I made the rails by using parts from another metal rack for the bottom and some plastic thingie thats a part of some cable hide system for the top.
    Used that stuff to seal doors at the edges of the lexan.






    Ventrata x Rebecca Soper seed forming


    Sanguinea with huge tendril at the left
    It's twice as long/thick as the last one.


    Bongso seedlings that i gave coffee about 3 weeks ago.
    They have a lot more color now

    make sure that the moss doesnt smoother the seedlings. other than that, that's a pretty sweet setup. i wish i had space to do something like that.

    That moss grows incredibly slow.
    It was sown in november.

    I love looking at peoples DIY setups! Best part of this hobby is doing DIY projects.

    Is that a Ficus benjamina? I've been experimenting with it in planted terrariums lately to see if they'll survive or not. So far so good.

    Yes it is.
    I got a couple of cuttings in there.
    I'm trying to get them to make air roots to make a nice bonsai someday.
    But since i closed it up and raised the humidity the twigs have become way more numerous but thin and long, and a lot of new leaves fall off before they even get a quarter of their eventual size.
    Maybe thats just bec all the temp/humidity changes the last 2 weeks while i was perfecting the setup.
