I have recently acquired a pair of basilisk, how cool are they   .  They are very active and sure like to eat and swim.  Couple of questions for anyone who has raised these guys before.  Is tap...

    Anyone ever try s/h growing on a nepth?

    My new venture for this year is orchids. Started with a kmart rescue a couple of months ago and now have 6--oppps, off topic LOL Anyhow, in researching care, I came across S/H growing for orchids (semi hydroponics). It made me think that a nepth may be a canidate for this type of growing since...

    Couple more questions

    Is there any reason why using water with fertilerzer in a spray bottle daily on the roots of a dend is a bad thing? I usually give a spritz or two daily and a good soak once (probably now twice) a week. Does turning the pot cause any problems. I know this is an issue with xmas catcus and a few...

    My first orchid

    Ok, I finally bit the bullet and bought myself an orchid. Actually its a KMart rescue cause $3.50 was all I was willing to pay for a plant that I have no clue about. Don't worry, I understand the logic that it may not make it cause it was so abused, but I'm use to that. I figure if I can get it...

    Ornate mountain dragon

    Ok, the pet store is getting to be as bad as Walmart for me, I can't go in and not spend money LOL. Added a Mountain Horned Dragon to our family about a month ago. Lovely fellow, that is a total load---husband has to hand feed him and I have to give him a daily shower for his water cause it...

    Anoles

    Bought another anole about 3 weeks ago. Pretty sure is a male (if not its a pretty big girl LOL). Now I'm not so sure its a green anole like my female. Do male green get the spiney crest down its back? This guy also seems to be alot more scaley than the female (if that makes sense). I do not see...

    Snails?

    I keep finding snails in my terrarium. I'm pretty sure they came from the former owner of the tank who kept fish in it. I also believe they are ramshorn snails although I'm somewhat confussed. I thought the snails would be water living (if they came from the former owner) but there is no water...

    Something i wrestle with

    All the research indicates it is best to leave plants potted in terrariums and bury the pots to create the natural look. My experience with this does not prove ideal and I wrestle with should I just plant direct in the medium of the terrarium. What I find is the folage of the plants doesn't...

    Couple of questions

    I have an air pump that is intended to run two tubes. If I wanted to just run one, would I be damaging the pump if there is nothing hooked up to one side? Can I plug the end of the one side with something, like a piece of clay (I'd want it removable for possible future use). Is the reptile...

    I redid my tank

    While on vacation last week, I managed to dedicate a full day to tearing down, moving and rebuilding my 55 gal tank.  It was a chore well worth the effort, I'm very pleased with the end result, have just a few more finishing touches to complete and plants and animals all seem to be happy.  A few...

    Couple of technical questions

    Inquiring minds want to know--- 1. How do you wash sand? That is wash it and not have most of it still sitting in the drive way when your done? My attempts seemed to waste more than clean more LOL---but I do have the tendancy to do things the hard way---so how do you do it? 2. Do you recycle...

    live spaghnum moss

    I have a potted d. spath and an unknown nepth where the lfs has sprouted. My question is, at what point for either of these plants is the moss competing with the plant for space? Should I repot and remove all the living moss, or just remove what is around the plant crown? Finally, I'd like to...

    Oxygen Plus/African Violet Food

    I have a bottle of oxygen plus which has an analysis content of: Urea Nitrogen 1%, Phosphoric Acid 3%, Soluble Potash 2%. It claims to release oxygen (0.25%) derived from Urea Hydrogen Peroxide. What do you think about its use on CP"s? In particular on Sarrs, Flytraps and Sundews that are kept...

    Powdered Milk?

    I know I saw a thread on this before, but can I find it now---of course not Is my memory correct that powdered milk is good for nepths and sarrs as a supplement food? (I'm interested in it mainly for the nepths). If so, how much?, how often?, it gets mixed with water you don't feed the...

    Dream Terrarium Part II

    Well, my 55 gal tank is set up and thanks to all the good advise, it is a success. It has passed the approval of my biggest critic (hubby), shop lights and all. Is there a way to post a picture without a web homepage? I don't have a homepage, but have a pic on my hard drive. There are still a...

    My Poor Ping

    Good news first, there is a flower on one of my pings. I believe it to be a primiflora (I don't think that is spelt correct, hope you know what I mean); light lavender flower with bright yellow middle. Its soooooo cute! Anyhow, the plant itself is one by one losing its leaves. They are going...

    Repotting question

    When potting up plants---in the Spring---what do you guys do about the medium that are in the existing pots? I'll be increasing the pot size of my VFT and Sarr's; I'm considering placing fresh peat (mixed with perlite) at the bottom of the pots, then taking plant and all medium that is in the...

    D. Adelae

    I have two D. adelae, they are in individual 4.5 inch pots, and kept in seperate table top greenhouse type structures. The insides range at 75-78 degrees and usually at 60-75% humidity. One plant looks great, growing like a weed and lots of dew; the other is more like a wet noodle, it is growing...
