Default The Jungle Gym

YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE? YOU IN THE JUNGLE, BABY!

Almost eight months ago, I put up a little thread letting my friends know I was dipping a toe back in the hobby again. Then that thread just sat around gathering dust.
Still no photos, and I don't think there ever will be on DendroBoard. DB doesn't like my picture size, or whatever, making posting pics difficult for a tech impaired old geezer like me. Too bad, because I'm getting some really great micro miniature orchid shots I can only share with my FaceBook friends.

However...I think I can show you around a bit.


No full thread this time, but here are some construction details.


And finally...Welcome to the Jungle!

It's hard to believe one can fit that many species into 40 gallons, but I suppose when you have a vast collection of orchids that can fit on a quarter, it's to be expected. I really like your arboreal structure, and how one branch goes up to the glass top. It helps give the impression that we're only looking through a window into the jungle, rather than at a jungle in a box.

"Oh there's another spot... I need another orchid" I absolutely love it, you could possibly go for a world record here haha. I really do like how you utilized the negative space. Not only is there more room for plants, but the frogs can utilize more of the tank. I don't even want to know how long it took to carefully line every inch of that tank with plants! Job well done of course.

We're gonna need a video of the frogs in the tank, Doug. That's just how it is.

I think the tank looks amazing, and am curious to see how it fills in / how often you have to trim/thin. Are you worried about orchids outcompeting one another and your species count gradually dropping?

VERY nice Doug!!! I'm only 1 week into Dart Frogs and I have started a smaller version of your tank... I have about 40+ species of Orchids, many Tillandsia's, plus other plants and mosses... I keep finding bare spots to place more miniature orchids!

There's always room for one more, right?

How do you keep track of all the different species? Is have a hard time telling them apart once in the viv.

I spent, oh so many hours, carefully mapping out each plant with a description of where it is in the viv, what wall, tree, or branch it's on, what other plants are around it, etc.
It's all carefully stored right here beside me, in this broken computer.

Thanks. On the plus side, my son is 18, so he's part of the right generation for computer related stuff. He says he can fix it easily. On the flip side...my son is eighteen. I won't be holding my breath.

Oh man that is a nice tank! Great use of negative space and resources. Reminds me of this one https://www.dendroboard.com/forum/me...aludarium.html which I really loved following along back in the day. Any updates Pumilo?
