    Thanks, Couch; that's really helpful.

    My humidity has been tough to keep steady. I'm at around 70% - 80% most of the time, but it drops to 45% - 55% by the time the grow lights have been on for 8...

    Health check on my new plants

    I received most of my plants about two weeks ago and transplanted them into my terrarium. Since then I've been taking photos every day or two to track their progress. The problem is: it's been 15...
  3. I worried that might be the case. Then again,...

    I worried that might be the case. Then again, experimentation can be fun. I've been taking photos every few days and will, I'm sure, be asking questions based on them in the coming weeks. I'll try...

    Do you happen to have a link to that research? I'd love to read a little more.

    I would love to use a natural photoperiod. Unfortunately, the grow light is almost blinding when on, and there are...

    This was very helpful. Using your model number, the standard size of a 55 gallon aquarium, and some Googling I was able to figure out a likely PAR value for comparison to my light. Thanks so much!...

    That's really helpful, thanks. Would you happen to know the model number of your light so that I can compare the output to my own?
  7. Thanks for the response, Bob. They came in a...

    Thanks for the response, Bob.

    They came in a little under a week ago. I got them under the grow light immediately starting at 6 hours and increasing by 45 minutes each day since then until I hit...
  8. How many hours does my grow light need to be on if providing 250-300 PAR?

    I've found a lot of advice on lighting but most of it focuses on 15-30 watt CFLs, or fluorescent tubes, used as grow lights. I have a 300 watt Bloomspect LED growlight. I don't have a meter myself,...

    So I finally have plants in my terrarium! :)

    Since My Last Post

    After the second coat of poly dried on everything I tested the waterfall. It worked great, but there was a bit of splashing...

    Well, I never received an email with the tracking number or anything, so I contacted the company. They said they track the weather and don't ship if it looks questionable, so they were holding my...

    That was my concern too. However, based on the USPS estimated delivery time, I figured where the package would be at each day. Today they should still be on their way out of the South where it's...
  12. Thanks; I ordered a few in today.

    Thanks; I ordered a few in today.
  13. Is it safe to ship during cold weather?

    I'd like to order some CPs for a new terrarium setup. However, highs here hover between 30 and 45 for the next two weeks, and who knows after that. I've already waited a week due to freezing...

    So what's the record for thread necromancy? ;)

    It's been years since I received this terrarium as a gift. I've been through several iterations of design, built three failed waterfalls (from foam...

    Thanks Grey Moss.

    I think I've decided to go ahead with the Bloomspect for now, after watching some Youtube reviews and reading a bit more. Then I'll run a couple strips of white LED lighting for...

    So I've been trying to do a little more research to understand lighting. It seems like I should be looking for a PAR rating on these things. I found a Youtube review that used a meter to show the...
  17. Would the Roleadro 300w full spectrum light be overkill for my 18" x 18" terrarium?

    I received a beautiful terrarium as a gift a couple years ago, and I'm sorry to say that between work, kids, home reno, and other "life" stuff, it's just sat there collecting dust. Now that I have...

    It's been a while, so I thought I'd post a quick update.

    This project has been set back. After applying several coats of silicone my waterfall was still leaking in many places. I had used more...
  19. The reason I put so many layers of acrylic on is...

    The reason I put so many layers of acrylic on is because of the size of the waterfall. If this were a large project where I could see into all the nooks and crannies of shallow lakes it wouldn't' be...

    So this took me a bit longer than I expected. My computer went down and life got otherwise busy, but I've still made some slow progress.


    First, some pictures of the waterfall. After several...

    Well, I promised I'd make updates as I went, so here's the next progress report. :)

    It's been a busy couple weeks between work and family, so I haven't made as much progress as I like, but there...

    Thanks for all the advice. First, a few responses, then I have a few more questions to bug you guys with. :)


    Well, it's not so much a matter of time, as it is a matter of remembering, or even...

    Thank you both for your thoughts.

    I agree that it sounds like the drip system would be a lot of trouble and difficult to setup. However, I've made assumptions like that before in areas that I'm...
  24. Setting up a new terrarium - watering (and other) advice requested

    I received a terrarium for Christmas last year and, I'm embarrassed to say, am just getting around to setting it up now. It's got an elegant design, and I've worked out how I want the inside laid...

    Thank you for the link. Unfortunately, the Find a Store link does not appear to function right now. Do you happen to have a direct link to a retailer?
