    I'm curious to see what some of your terrariums look like! I'll be posting a pic of mine soon I hope (once the film is developed). Some of your terrarium pics might help me for good setup ideas. Anyone interested? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Wow, nice set-ups and plant collections everyone! Well, I said I'd get mine here, so here it is...the newbie terrarium in full color!

    [img]C:\my documents\my pictures\terrarium.jpg[/img]

    Just tiny, the mister was on when I took this pic, and these were the VFT's I was having such trouble with and gave up on. No plants right now, but plenty coming! I have moved the mister to the back center of the tank at an uphill slope so that the mist can distribute evenly.

    [img]C:\my documents\my pictures\terrarium1.jpg[/img]

    Oh for the terrarium of my dreams! The plan eventually is to make a huge one complete with a full operating fountain with mister to give the terrarium a nice tropical effect with full waterfall ad lots of foliage. Have lots of misters and fountain pumps, it's everything else that'll cost us! Someday though...
