    Here's me and the terrarium previous to getting my order from PFT. ON the left are some orchids, begonias, african violets, and selaginella



    This one shows the two levels of the terrarium. It's actaully much brighter than in the picture. At the bottom you can see the algae that has infested the water of the lower level.



    Here's a close-up of the neps and such. The pot w/tray is my dead heliamphora that I just got in the mail. It couldn't handle the trip. You can also see the lighting diffuser grid.

    Thanks for the photos guys!

    Gafoto, are heliamphora known for dying in transit? I was thinking of buying one but if they're supertouchy maybe I won't...

    Kim, what kind of sealer would I use? Is there a certain brand like Thompsons Water Seal or something like that that I should look for? I don't want to use anything that might leave toxic residue when wetted wth water.

    Wow, your pictures are so inspiring! My own terrarium suddenly feels so small and so cramped... collecting plants can get way out of control... though i suppose its better than pets (like those crazy people that have like 20 cats)...

    Joachim: what are your dementions? (ooh that sounds kind of perverted... grin) Is your terrarium homemade? Is natural lightning all you use?

    Martin: what kind of light is yours? Is it metal hallide?

    Gafoto: oh you are a lucky man... Was that space originally a closet?

    Oh dear, I've been fantasizing about a greenhouse like this:

    packed with plants, spilling over with pitchers, a vining twisted mess of green love.

    (big grin)

    Hi,

    I use 70W "high pressure sodium" lights. <- I hope this is the correct translation.
    The most effective light, but it has yellow color. (Your eyes adept after a while but slide film doesn't)

    Whiseperson, not being sure what you mean by demention I'll try it with the dimension ;-) Mine is 120cm x 60cm x 80cm, exact the same size Martins has. The window is east facing and gets lot of direct sunlight but I do have additional fluorescent grow lights which are needed in winter. I bought the terrarium in a local pet shop and I think it was made for geckos, frogs, etc. A nice feature is you can shift the front to one side or remove it in a few seconds to watch your plants from eye to eye ;-) Some of the plants living inside can be seen on my PFT page.
