    Looking real good there!
    Congrats!

    IME, having a set-up like this is nice for a while, but they tend to grow so well sometimes, that they quickly overgrow into a real mess that needs repeated tending. Not that I wasn't able to deal with it, but after a while it got to be a real hassle.
    It does give a lot more satisfaction than a bunch of half-thriving plants stuffed on a metal rack, as it is like creating an amazing piece of nature in a crystal box! I hope it does well for you.

    I have since gone the route of having a "crystal box of nature", with individual pots of plants. Having live Sphagnum growing over things gives it a "natural landscape" look, but the pots make controlling growth, replacing plants & changing the set-up, a whole lot easier & more in line with the ease I need & time I have to care for them all.


    Again, your set-up looks terrific! I hope you have better long-term luck with it & that it gives years of enjoyment. Having something like this is certainly "Living-room" worthy!
    (While my one nice "terrarium" does reside in our den, my grow-racks are tucked away in a spare bedroom while most of the other things are outdoors or in the greenhouse.)

    Experience is the best teacher. At least it used to be.
    But then, common sense isn't so common anymore, is it.

    I was thinking the same thing. Great coloration on the Ceph from just that one light.

    Now that is really nice, almost looks natural!

    So that it? Only a 26W compact? How long do you have it on?
