    A paludarium I've been working on

    I haven't been updating on my fish/critters in a while, so I felt unveiling this little project would be a good place to start.



    46 gallon bowfront tank. Not sure of the eventual inhabitants, but probably frogs, and Rivulus killifish. The white stuff is just edible mushrooms I tossed in for springtail food.
    1 Nxventrata

    D. muscipula & D. muscipula 'Red Dragon'(barely)

    Sarracenia leucophylla(seedling)

    S. purpurea and Drosera filiformis filiformis/ intermedia seeds waiting to sprout.

    Drosera capensis

    I've been trying to convince my dad to do one. Hope he does, it probably wouldn't look that good though.

    This is my first try...research research.


    I have added in a few plants. Monstera obliqua, Selaginella plana(too hard to find any Costarican species), Codonanthe gracilis(to be removed, who wants it?), Columnea microphylla, Pilea microphylla,Anthurium gracile, and Utricularia longifolia(similar species occurs in CR).




    Taiwan moss growth on the shoreline. It is also growing up the manzanita branch sticking into the water.


    Begonia glabra. The fastest growing plant in this viv right now, cept for maybe the new Pilea. It is also sending out aerial roots since I started misting.


    A rather funny looking Anthurium gracile. It is sending up leaves


    Artillery plant. This thing is growing like crazy already


    U. longifolia experiment. With sphagnum and misting with RO will it take?[/quote]
