After further examination, I realized that every single popsicle stick was moldy and I had to spend the rest of the weekend repotting the majority of my nep collection. Just some advice
    the sticks are a little funky , i probably should do some repotting as most things in the setup are still in their first pots some for more than 3 years.

    if you look close you can see the white pvc tube in the back upper area, it has several hols drilled in it,at several different angles, and runs the length of the terrarium, and out both ends, one end is closed off , and the other has a computer fan attached to a oil filler funnel, its on all the time ,
    wish when i built the terrarium i had made the holes twice the size , because i wont risk the tank to try drilling now,
    if i build another tank in the future ill make the holes at the ends at least 1 1/2" .
    But even at 1" I get a lot of air to all parts of the tank.

    I love the white grating you've used to support the plants. Where did you get it?

    That is called eggcrate. You can find it at home depot/lowes in the roof/building section.

    Great plants Jimmy. Hopefully you can make a highland section for your neps in there.
