Default My un-planted viv

I'm very pleased with the turnout. CC is welcome.

This is the little water hole. That vine is their safety rope

Is this fernish thing ok for a viv?

Now what plants would go good in here?

Looks good johnny. I am not sure what plants to put in there since when I clicked to enlarge the picture and it was too huge to really see anything. If you resize the picture I would be more than happy to look and see if I can suggest anything.

And on the no posting and just looking, get used to it... I have almost 800 views on my viv.. and a total of maybe 6 or 7 posts. So as long as you don't need reassurance or a lot of advice (other than "you'd know that if you did a search") :roll: post away...

Thanks for the post. The pics aren't big. You have to wait for the monster pic to fully load then it resizes itself

Dude, it was posted for an hour. Chill.

As to your viv, I can barely see it. Larger pictures would be very helpful. Good luck!

I should've specified, I meant wider shots of the tank. As in, a shot from farther away so we can see the ENTIRE thing.

And I wasn't fussing at you, I was just letting you know--if you don't get a response within an hour, you'll get one soon. No need to bump it so early.

From what I can tell, the tank looks good!

Ok Johnny, from what I can see in your picture, and I would post some more from other angles, I would put some kind of creeper on your background, like Ficus pumila (I think that is the species) I would put some type of foliage to give them cover other than your hut and pod. Bromes are always a favorite with people, maybe some moss. Some riccia is good. How about a Begonia rex to add some color, although I am not sure how big it gets... Speaking of, what size tank is this?

how big is the tank ???

Begonia Rex is a bad idea ... they are very aggressive and invasive. Unless the tank is over 4 foot long Id not add one

However.
Begonia 'Marmaduke'
Begonia 'Red Planet'
Begonia 'Leopon'
Begonia 'Dracula'
Begonia 'Small Change'
Begonia bowerae nigramarga
Begonia quadraliata ssp nimaensis
Begonia rajah
Begonia 'Abu Dahbi'

Are all very nice sized for terrariums
Cissus amazonica
Ficus pumilia
Small types of Wandering Jew
Peperomia meridiana
Peperomia metallica 'Columbiana'
Peperomia Japonica
Peperomia prostata
Peperomia 'Clover'
All are well suited small creepers for the background

Bromeliads
Neoregelia 'Tarbaby'
Neoregelia 'Sarahhead'
Neoregelai 'Tigercub'
Neoregelia 'Chiquita Linda'
Neoregelia 'Fireball'
Neoregelia 'Redbird'
Neoregleia pauciflora

Orchids
Macodes petola
Ludisia discolor
Ludisia dicolor var 'Nigrescians'

Selaginella
S. erythropus Slow grower
S. uncicata insanely fast
S . martiana upright
S. Plana Upright and very fast growing
S. wildenouwii upright and medium growing

And no that fernish thing... which is a type of Palm Tree... will get tooooo big... although it is slow growing

Hope this helps


Todd

And that list above pretty much comprises Todd's plant collection.

Ficus pumilia itself is very invasive--I normally only use it in quarentine. However, Ficus pumilia "oak leaf" is much slower, much less invasive, and much nicer looking. The plants Todd listed are good ones. Additionally, philodendrons make nice foliage plants.

Good luck!
