Default Thought this was cute and wanted to share.

My mom has fallen in love with my vivs, but has no interest in living animals in one.
We got a 1.5 gallon aquarium, and I planted it for her today. I know many of the things will out grow it shortly, but this is what she pictured in her mind, so I'll take care of the pruning and replanting when needed!
Just thought I'd share. I'm going to make little clay critters to put in there to add some color.

Nice. I'll bet it'll look cool when it's grown out a bit too.

Thank you!
I can't wait til it grows out a bit- I'm looking for something that may be small to put in there that has some color in it. I put a small piece of bolivian wandering jew in there for the purple.

@JoshK- I have a small piece of curly fig, and oak leaf creeping fig up there, I'm hoping that one of them takes off and covers it.

There are some miniature orchids that would be fantastic for a little viv like that. Cool idea.

I will have to look into that! My mom has been pushing me to make mini viv/terrariums for people to put on their tables around holidays or just as centerpieces. I doubt I'd find much of a market for it! Do you by chance know any names of specific orchids?


hukilausurfer- here's a size reference photo!

You'd be surprised how popular miniature vivs are. There are some people who have businesses making them. And when I say miniature I'm talking like glass jar sized. They are super cute. All my vivs so far were set up long before I ever bought frogs and I absolutely love the look of a viv packed full of lush plants. No animals needed! Of coure there's a enough growth in them right now that when I do get the inhabitants in you may never see them. And that's ok since a terrarium well planted is still beautiful. You need to post pics in the future of it when everything grows in.

Thanks everyone! I It was a fun little project today. My mom already has 2 more tanks on the way for me to do! Next one is going to be more rockwallish I think. She want's spots for shelves to be able to put mini glass figurines lol. I think she can tell I need some busy work!

I will definately post pics of it as it grows in!!! I think all the stuff should do well with out constant high humidity. I'm looking into the mini orchids!
