HI, well i decided to turn my 55gallon fish tank into a 55gallon terrarium, and made a quick vid to see how it went, sorry for it not being the best vid but here it is...
All the neps on my growlist are in the tank except my truncatas as there wasn't any room and there getting big, and the n. ampullaria. it is pictured in there but i decided not to take the chance as its a lowlander so i put it back in the nep seed starting tank with higher humidity and temps.
i will get an update posted of all of the plants with close ups in the next few months once everyone has a pitcher or 2. If your wondering what the thing in the back left corner is, i thought i read about putting a jar of water in the tank to keep humidity up so there is a jar with a submersable fishtank heater in there, which has actually or to what i believe has increased the humidity, you can tell just putting your hand in the tank.
In the vid they to me do seem a bit crowded, so in the future i do plan to do the same thing with a 30 gallon fish tank that is just sitting in the living room with no fish just full of water, collecting algae...it was hard scrubing the 55 clean the 30 is little worse...if you would like me to try to make another vid i will try, since christmas is comming up i will definately need more room for my cps, and will be looking to buy some more neps from forum members if you have something im interested in
Feel free to comment question, opinions to help improve, etc. i do plan hopefully with the help of christmas to spend some of the money i get to buy some new lighting fixtures, and possibly some type of fan to help circulate the air.
thanks to all that have traded with me my nep collection has greatly increased with trading with forum members.
ps: the sundew seeds have started to germinate, i have not seen any neps start though, hopefully they do, or it might just be i can't really find them easily in live sphagnum moss
