Sticky is a term that refers to threads that are permanently displayed (stuck) at the top of the forum listings. If you go into a forum ex: Beginner Discussion - Dendroboard

you will see several threads which will always appear at the top while the threads below rotate based on which ones were last active. They say "sticky" in front of them. This makes them easily accessible and gives them a high degree of visibility. This is typically reserved for extremely useful threads such as this one.

Since this thread is actually included as a link in a sticky called "Good Plant Threads" in the Plants forum you will always be able to find it easily that way. By subscribing (posting in a thread automatically subscribes you to that thread or you can use the "Thread Tools" box at the top of the thread to subscribe without posting) you will be notified by email when a thread is updated. You can always bookmark the page in your browser to make it easy to come back to as well! Good luck!

So now that I know what kind of plant to plant in the terrarium, can you help me with substrate? I have a false bottom setup with gravel and a tree fern panel on top. Then its covered in coco fiber. Do I add some type of soil to plant the plants in or do they grow in the coco fiber? Sorry, I'm very new to all of this!

Hello abyrd19. Welcome to Dendroboard!!

This website has been here for a good while now and as such has a PLETHORA of information at your very disposal. Most of the more common questions can be answered by doing a little ol' fashion digging.

From what it sounds like, your gravel/tree fern "false bottom" won't actually do you any good in terms of a false bottom. This is b/c water can still wick upwards through the gravel AND the tree fern and saturate your soil. You may want to research the egg crate style false bottom.

Good luck!!

Yeah I'm around. Sorry about the pictures. My server literally burned up so I lost all my sites and hosting. Unfortunately I have not spent the time to find another host. I really need to do that.

Can anyone recommend a good place to rent server space from?

I rented from servage a few years back. Unlimited space and bandwidth. I think it was $45 every 6 months. Never had any problems with them.

Really sorry. Its one of those things where I'm like, "Yeah I really need to get to that." It will happen. I can't say when exactly but it will.
