I planted some bare root VFT'S (4) in a large mouth 'fish bowl' type terrarium leaving the top open, of course. 50/50 Canad.sphagnum/perlite mix approx. 5" deep.
I just want to mention to all that is interested that I'm surprised I don't see more clear glass open Brandy or
'Fish Bowl' type habitats for VFT'S.
I figure if it is at least 4" deep with large mouth ( to retreive for dormancy) then it has alot to offer.
a) Keeps humidity perfect without the unsightly dish underneath that always gets dirty.
b) Although requires careful monitoring of watering, needs watered less because of water retention characteristic of the semi-closed environment.
c) Pleasing to the eye, and helps prevent curious fingers, etc.
The only problem I could see would be that this would definately be an indoor jobber, as the glass would get hot outdoors.
I guess maybe I'm just looking for confirmation that I did the right thing. I couldn't find much info. on the search feature on this subject, so thought I would post it here to see if I'm alone on this.
