    For Trade Wondering about the gorilla in the roon

    Hi there, With the modern day black plague on the loose, I am curious how folks here and elsewhere are viewing trading thru the mail. My family has a modest house in another city, but it seems travel is being discouraged at best. Or more to the point, what you cannot do is easier found out...

    Terrarium heating ideas?

    What I heard is make a false floor out of plastic light fixture diffuser, and "set it off the bottom" with pieces of tubing or plastic napkin rings or whatever. Add 3 or four inches of water. Put in a totally submergible aquarium heater. Lay the heater down flat. Dial it to your desired...

    Setting up a new terrarium - watering (and other) advice requested

    I would not necessarily abandon the waterfall/circulating thing, but I would advise against using a bucket under the terrarium. In your first iteration with the pump and lines in the tank, if something comes loose, it feeds back into the tank, no harm no foul. Or at worse you scotch a pump...

    Can I Grow Neps In the DFW region?

    Whoa, I thought I read Sarrs! Same thing, sort of, the climate will ding you. If you grow outside. Summer is too hot, winter is too cold, and spring and fall are just about right. Finding a place indoors when it dips below 50F (assuming lowlanders) and with enough light to keep them happy...

    Can I Grow Neps In the DFW region?

    Sarrs in Texas Sure, why not? Where you are, I think it tends to stay pretty humid year round, or at least in most of the summer, right? I am in San Antonio, and here in late summer, it gets hella hot, and dry, and correspondingly we get quite low humidity. I used to have many Sarrs, and now...
