    A Nep vivarium gets started

    So I've just begun this new 10 gallon vertical vivarium, Still working on the plantings obviously!



    Some of the first plants:

    N. belli x thorelii x aristolochioides this is a rooted cutting so I can see it's the perfect diameter for this tank , not too big.



    This miniature fern is Elaphoglossum peltatum "coarse form".




    This is Platycerium madagascariense which is a very small staghorn fern species who's main feature is the rippled clasping shields and creates only a few 8" upward arching fertile fronds



    Tank is intermediate with days 70-75*F and nights that can get down to 60*F but generally 65*F

    Thanks guys here's an update,



    I moved a Cephalotus in the front of the tank, it was getting blasted outside in the heat, has 4 growth points on it after I cleaned out the dead leaves and pitchers


    Here's "Watermelon" Peperomia (the stripey leaves) and "panama" ficus (small oblong leaves) Not sure what the moss I've got plugged into the wall is, looks like Pilea but has very tiny button fern style "fronds" There are some other large spike moss type things here and there in it, we'll see which grows best.


    This is some form of Selaginella that grows very tall I've placed a rootless N. aristolochioides here in hopes it will make roots in the live Sphag, it has defied making roots for me in any other situation I've tried in the past 6-8 months.




    And lest you think I forgot that vivariums flood, this single nice black rock hides the false bottom and net, the siphon goes in through the slit in the net and then the rock hides the whole thing.



    Here's a few shots of the Geosesarma vampire crab tank and the Nepenthes ampullaria collection:






    "Harlequin" first pitcher in the new setup on a bed of U. gramminifolia


    A orange/red seed grown amp.



    This little one is already making it's first basal rosette, hopefully the first of many! LOL
