Default Exo Terra Nano

My first exo terra. I always hesitant to spend $100 for buying exo terra, but then I bought a nano exo terra for plants only just to try it out. It is not disappointing, it is well built.

I only have ground coverage plants. Please give me any suggestion what to put to cover the vertical part of the terrarium.

you could add some branches at the back
with some climbers also add some bromeliads
which you can tie on to the branches or pin on to back
add some moss stuck onto the branches would make it look a lot better
well that is what I would do
then add a pair of frogs for movement
best of luck with whatever way you go with the vivarium
just have a look at some of the vivariums on here will give you some idea

won't bromeliads too big for this nano?
some people in the forums are not agreeing with adding frog in the nano though.

I am one of those people.

In my opinion putting frogs or a single frog in this size of tank, is the same as animal abuse. There is no way you can simulate different micro climates is that size of tank. These tanks are made for spiders.

Just look how far the frogs in the link hop in one jump and tell me i am wrong.

Given the original post, I don't think the OP was planning on putting a frog in it. I think they were just responding the other poster's comment who thought there might be frogs going in it...

Some of them are yes. The smallest species I know of is Neoregelia lilliputiana, just under 3 inch long. But there are also several hybrids that grow to similar height 2-5 inch that would fit fine in your tank (and actually make it look bigger).
