I am new to this forum, so it would be nice to have some options...
I have a VFT my uncle tried to keep one when I was very young but it did not live very long...
Now I understand that about the watering from the bottom however if they get too wet on the top will they die ? there is a valid reason why I ask this as I would like to keep a VFT in a terrarium, as you see them shipped with a plastic cover.
So here is the plan
Glass container below
The top will be support with a 3mm gap around the top for air flow
The bottom will have a small pebble like stones to show the water level
On top will be the peat based mixture.
But I am unsure as to the watering if it has to be watered on the bottom only then I was going to supply a glass tube feed direct to the bottom. to avoid watering from the top, but then will it die if it gets to wet, if the glass drips this is my thought.
Only other problem would be that it could not be put outside due to the ice expanding and breaking the glass...
So can I have some thoughts on this idea please
Many thanks Noddy
