Been almost a year since last update, can we get an update on added plants and growth, perfected the misting system/nozels, and hopefully some inhabitants to go along with this great build. Good luck in the meantime.

Maybe it didn't work out. Sometimes, your taste can change from the moment you started your project until it is finished. I thought the enclosure is too unnatural and too square.

Lighting a room this size for plants can be problematic. Is not a green house and so you may need artificial lighting.

I know it's been a while, but here are a few photos of how it currently stands.

Life has been way too busy so I've done little more than maintain the room. There are no animals in there currently. While I've tried, I've been unable to get the temperatures stable enough to trust putting anything tropical in there.

If I were to do it again, I would change a few things. For the rocks, I would use a 2 part epoxy instead of the grout for the base coats at least. The grout was a pain to put on. A false floor with reservoir underneath would have helped a lot with the water. Because of how I segmented the water from the rest of the floor, i have to have a separate pump to drain the bottom of the soil area occasionally from splashing. The clay soil also has broken down. I have a good supply of worms in it which keep it aerated and plants are doing well in it, but it is basically a slightly structured clay and has lost any semblance to dirt. If I were to try it again, I'd use more binder/concrete in the original mix to try to get it to hold up better.
myersboy6 and Lake like this.

It takes me forever to get a 20gal the way I want it. I'd pull my hair out worrying about something that size! Cool idea though.

I like the way the vines have grown in. Temps can be hard to control, especially with the skylight. But still, looks very nice!
