Default D. azureus - Custom made wooden viv (updated 8/1)

The vivarium measures 24x24x24, and currently houses a young pair of D. azureus. I started planting starting 3 weeks ago, and it has grew in a little bit since then. The inside of the walls are covered in 2 layers of contact paper, then siliconed and sealed. The picture's aren't that great, I took these as quick snapshots and tests b/c my camera finally got fixed. But hey, I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking...



Nepenthes sp.


Guzmania sp. flower


Guzmania lingulata flower


Cryptanthus bivittatus


Sarracenia purpurea


And of course the male inhabitant!

Very nice work, Tyler. Once those plants fill in a bit more, that terrestrial setup will be even better.

Keep us posted!

Excellent tank! How do the doors do for holding in fruit flies?

The doors are just the right thickness, so that there is just a tiny gap between them. They also fit very "flush" with the end of sliding bracket so there's no gap there. That is one of the main reasons I bought 2 pitcher plants, fearing that FFs may escape - with the pitchers plants, only that much less will escape.

Your vivarium looks great, but I have a question for you:
S. purpurea is a temperate pitcher (from the United States), so are you concerned about its need for a dormancy period? Otherwise, I'm quite impressed with your setup. Keep up the good work

It gives of a nice forest floor feel. Makes me think of retics...
I like it!

Thanks for the replies everyone.
Agrippa - I'm not too concerned about the dormancy period, but we'll see what happens in the future.

asydabass - Maybe one day, I'll be able to purchse a group of retics... I really want some - colors are awesome.

I did some changing to the viv, and found a nice moss patch behind my house. The pitcher and nepenthus plant began to rot, so I need to find a way to create a better airflow.
