I posted this in terrarium forums...however, visitors there seem too little compared to the vft forum. So since majority of my plants are VFT's. I am reposting here. I am still waiting with the materials after 2 hrs since I posted...just sitting at the computer to know if this is how I should start
Finally after all that planning and searching. I have made the move. As posted on the other forum, I first had an ikea greenhouse. but now, after purchasing some CP's from Keehns carnivores, I returned the 20$ mini greenhouse and bought these. The materials are in hand, and I am RIghT NOW...as I write planning on starting the build. I hope you guys can pop in fast and help me.
here are my materials:
1) a tank from Pj's pet store : 14$ CDN incl tax
I want to start small and cheap...so here is a small aquarium.
2) Here are my substrate materials:
peat moss : 4 $ CDN
perlite: 4 $ CDN
3) Here are the inhabitants:
i) My 2 week old walmart VFT ..now seeming to fluorish properly
in the background is an airplant : 2$
4) the new comers are here:
from Keehns carnivores in BC, presenting: 1 B52 VFT, 2 typical vft, 1 drosera capensis sundew
very good packaging
ooooo....I am sooo excited.
missing in pics is a crate of aquafina pepsi de-mineralized water which I plan on using TILL snow time when I can collect snow for natural water.
Now this is what I plan on following as instructions::
Please tell me if those are good instuctions.
I plan on first putting a 1 inch perlite layer. Then mixing 60/40 peat moss and perlite.
then I would water it with a full or half 500 ml aquafina water.
then I would make way in the mixture to pot the plants.
Is this ok? can i do it this way?
Please reply asap....I am waiitng for your opinions experienced CP growers. I am very very excited....I just want to start off makign it right now ...also becos I am worried that something will happen to the new plants. however, they seem to have enough moisture and are well packaged. Yet..they look floppy and need to be potted asap.
