    Good Morning Everyone, I was fairly active on the forum a little over a year ago when researching how to build a vivarium for my two P. terribilis. Everyone was very helpful and the project turned out well. I wanted to share how the enclosure looks after 18 months of plant growth! Thanks...

    Hey all, I have done vivariums and aquariums on and off my whole life. I also grow orchids as here in San Francisco I can grow many outdoors and I have a greenhouse too. I am working towards building indoor vivaria with lots of automation and create environments I can control and manipulate...

    Hello again, friends! The vivarium is COMPLETE! Decided to make this a separate thread from my old one since this is the final product (for now). I named it "Visions of a Cloud Forest" because every single plant comes from South America, with emphasis on those that come from the cloud forests...

    This is my first time making my own tanks from scratch, it took many sliced fingers and made my living room a mess for a couple days, but it was well worth it. I siliconed egg crate to the back wall for extra support as the hardscape was going to be heavy. I then put the pieces of wood...

    Hi there. I'm researching the idea of combining my love of orchids into a paludarium with as many different aquatic and herp species as I can. I transformed my son's Bearded Dragon tank into a bioactive and now I am hooked. Is it possible to combine dart frogs with small arboreal geckos, newt...

    Just thought I would post a thread about the success I am having with the bromeliads I received about 2 months ago. Some of you know we have a project going on called The Rainforest Exhibit. we are building a large indoor rainforest vivarium in the largest Amphibious Aquarium ever made by...
  7. General Discussion
    Hey everyone. I've recently gotten back into plants (especially orchids) pretty hard and I've taken notice that a large divide in keeping plants is the temperature variance (or at least the day to night variance). There are so many ferns, orchids, etc that really don't excel in our...

    After Christmas I have been able to order some more plants. This time from Andy's Orchids. Andy is very helpful and spent a lot of time with me on the phone while I put together a package of plants, and I was not at all disappointed when they arrived. Though on the pricey side, the delivery is...

    I got this Barbosella orchid maybe a month ago from a great vendor on ebay and over time the leaves have turned more and more purpleish and look not so great. From what I've read, the purpling of leaves is a sign of too much light and/or dehydration, so I reconfigured the lighting in my tank...

    Hi there! I have been working on this corner viv in the past year almost and now it's finally planted despite all the troubles i encountered along the way (including the front bottom glass cracked :mad: ). I made my own LED DIY lighting, with Cree xm-l's and some red and blue diodes. It is a...

    Here is my first vivarium that I finished 10 min ago. I originally started it as a crested gecko vivarium. That is why I have the Golden Pothos and Sansevieria, not my favorites. I would really like to put in an aglaonema pictum tricolor in place of the Sansevieria and maybe a few peperomia...

    I am trying to finish up this 20 gallon viv to eventually house some incoming R. variabilis. It's the first real one I've put together, and I could really benefit from the amount of experience represented by the members of this forum! It's using clay for the 3-sided background and I've got a...
