    Hm seems like most people use their terrarium like a greenhouse. My bigger terrarium is more like a garden under glass containing the more forgiving species:



    The trickier species are growing in pots:



    I have a east facing window and additonal lights which is far enough for any species on my growlist. Only Heliamphora looked green and ugly, everything else has a nice coloration.

    Jan,
    Wow! That's really, really nice! How do you keep it so nicely manicured? If I had that, it would be covered in carpet moss in about five seconds. I just checked in here to post a pic of my motley terrarium, but now I'm not so sure! I'm speechless!

    Anyway, here's my lousy tank:

    Thanks!

    I have a pair of nail scissors and tweezers to get the moss and black (old) leaves out of the "garden"...
    Every week half an hour is all in all enough care...

    WOW! Buckeye those are some great looking V.F.T.s. Did you gets those brite colors out of your V.F.T.s from grow lights? I read that the sunlight itself is much better, but I would disagree if your V.F.T.s look like that from grow lights. If you got them that way from grow lights, what is your setup and what fluorescent bulbs are you using? Also, is that Mylar tape you are using? I have never see it.

    Here is my "super humid" tank!

    Just a few bonsai trees and an orchid in it now. Working on a living vivarium for my dart frogs that is modeled after this waterfall in Suriname, South America.


    I have written a detailed instruction set and drawn up blueprints for the whole construction (i am an obsessive perfectionist!) using many different techniques that i have found in vivarium and terrarium building. I will post "progress" pictures as we go along, let me know if you would like to see my blueprints and instructions!

    Drunknmonkey,

    Why Suriname? Have you ever lived there? It's a pretty obscure country commonly looked over. I used to live in the Netherlands and had some friends who went there after learning the Dutch language with me for a couple months. It's just interesting to meet someone who's been there.

    Unless of course you just found that pic online and have no relation to Suriname at all.

    Well, Here's my Tanks!

    Odysseus,

    I did in deed find that picture online, it was here [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] http://www.surinam.net/

    I could not really tell you specifically why i shose suriname, i have never been there, but it looks beautiful. I guess you could say that i like to do things that are unique, not just a go with the flow aditude. Also, i picked the breed of dart frogs that i wanted to raise first and they happened to be from suriname, so i went with that line of thought for the environment tank.
