A short while ago we were given a huge 6x3x(almost)2 foot glass display case. This is the kind of thing you buy watches or cameras out of.
Never mind the "redneck" stand it's on, it's all we could afford, LOL!
The doors came mirrored. Once we get soem cash saved up, we'll have the doors re-cut as clear glass. The wood is a mess of tree roots we found one day, and they've been sitting around for years, waiting for a use to come along. I was playing with my beardie when I needed two hands. I put him on the wood and.... Zzzz Zzzzz Zzzzz Zzzz Zzzz
Sorry, Teddy, this wood's not for you! (Now I gotta go out and find HIM one. )
This will be a LL setup-- it is the biggest thing I will ever DREAM of having, and has room to let N. rafflesiana and bical. stretch out a bit. But what else can I put in there? What kinds of Utrics and orchids like LL conditions? Are there any ferns or other "interesting" growy-things that will co-habitate nicely? I intend this to be a "natural" scene--no pots. Like this: Living Clay background test
What about fauna? Is there a critter that I can keep in there, too?
What kind of lights do I need? I think I'd need them to be at least 4 T8 tubes wide, right?
How on Earth can I water proof the bottom? It's just cheap-o particle board down there. I was thinking of either pond-liner or Formica, glued into place (with some 3M super-duper industrial glue or epoxy, not just silicone).
