peat perlite seems a bit sterile imho.
I used potting soil with a bit of perlite and sand for drainage, these things dont like to stay wet.(unless its rlly hot and sunny, then mine dont seem to mind standing in water)
Tnx :) no waterfall, too messy, it would have to be accesible and installed in such a way it would not keep the substrate waterlogged.
I do have a little pool with sandy beach in the front right corner to allow me to syphon out exess water.
Got another babybird in the backyard today, this time a Blue Tit.
And finished my frog terrarium(no frogs in it yet)
Last few weeks a bunch of plants came in and today i had time to put them in.
The stuff in the tub is all new.
This is whats in it:
Dresslerella pilosissima (orchid)
