Default Re: Large / X-Tall Exo Terra

So the trial and error continues.

The idea is to be able to strip this tank with minimal disruption so all planted components are modular and easily removed ó branches, the stump etc.

I removed the Neoregelias and dropped the light levels by two-thirds because my moss was bleaching; itís colouring up and slowing growth now; I did remove some that was too bleached out but itís proving to be an aggressive species so should regenerate easily.

Nothing is final but I wanted to share an experiment:

Podocarpus guatemalensis is a conifer known to be present in lowland forest in Colombia and elsewhere in Amazonia; I wanted to use P. macrophylla (they look similar and macrophylla is easy to get) but even in a vivarium I expect a tree to give me problems at some point:

So Iím attempting to severely limit its growth by mounting it epiphytically. I think itíll need frequent pruning as itís going to get lanky but interested to see if I can shape it up on that perch.





You may notice a lone Syngonium leaf up there; itís a cutting with a very long aerial root embedded in that moss. Will see what it does; I think Iíll see something from the node but not sure about the shape.
