Just got 1 Southwest giant (a little shop of horrors clone) and an Akai Ryu.
The southwest giant lives up to its name - IT IS HUGE !!!
I've decided that my house was too cold for previous attempts (about 17C - big house + UK weather!) - so I've got a light and tank setup. The terrarium is a 5 Gallon tank, and at present I'm using a 15watt bulb errr...it's not a house bulb cos its a weird shape. I'm thinking of adding a cool blue flourescent later. Temp wise - 22C(72F) and humidity at 60 - 70 %. Should I use a heat mat when I want to mimic full summer (the house wont alter that much!!)??
I'd post a picture, but I haven't got a website [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] *
The plants are starting to open out already (they've only been in it for 1 day). I've covered the tank with tin foil around both sides and back. Any thoughts people? A window ledge is impracticle since I've tried growing two before and they both seemed to go into dormancy permamently!! (Something to do with the UK rain and poor window/sun exposure!)
