    Hi, I'm building an 18x18x24 ExoTerra for hopefully 2-4 Ranitomeya species and working on filing in the hardscape. I want to make sure I have a lot of foliage and hiding spots, knowing these species are not often on the ground. I'll be allowing the plants to grow in for several months before...

    The month-long plant quarantine is finally over but I’m a having a few issues and wanted to make sure everything was good to go before going forward with the build. These are my plants 1) Both my neoregelia bromeliads have some old dried up leaves, should I wait for these to fall off on their...

    Hello, I am getting a 20 gal high tank and are thinking of putting a tinc pair in there. I like the look of the more heavy planted tanks but don't want to over do it. I was thinking of 3 Bromeliads, 2 trailing plants, 2 ferns, and 6 terrestrials. Is it going to be too much? Thanks!

    Does anyone have any suggestions for the best dart frog plant pack on any websites that would include some broms? I've been looking on a lot of websites and eBay but just not sure which one to get and what would be best for my tank. If anyone has any suggestions for which one I should get, I'm...

    Hey, just want to say when I post this I can’t get a photo in because I’m building my bed. But anyways I left my house for a couple of hours today and my fireball is a little grey under the leaves. I didn’t have time to spray it because I was in a rush. Now you may be wondering, oh shouldn’t it...

    Hi, I was wondering what is going on with the top leaf, why is it curling inward? Can it still be saved? I touched it it doesn’t feel dry or anything. Humidity stays around 80-90.

    Hello there! I'm fairly new to this hobby, having found this forum a bit after setting up my vivarium. It's been planted now for right at two months, and I'm having some issues with a couple of the plants in it. I have a 10 gallon horizontal aquarium setup that I got a plant pack for from...

    Hi everyone, this is my first time making a vivarium and my frog (i am a father to be) arrives in two weeks. My plants have been growing in the terrarium for about a week and a half now - I planted them originally and then realized I hadn't cleaned them, so I pulled them out, rinsed the roots...

    Hello everyone, So in a few months I'll be constructing a 40-50 gallon paludarium for my fire belly toads, along with some shrimp, snails, and a few fish. I know a few plants that I'll be using such as pothos (a classic), java moss, sphag moss, some various vining plants, and probably anubias...

    So as some of the folks on this board may know, I'm planning a 40-50 gallon paludarium for some my fire belly toads, one of the features being a cave (window/opening in the front of the tank). There will be a slow-flowing, almost dripping waterfall running into the cave and a pool at the bottom...

    I am scaping a tank thats 2' long x 1' wide x 8" tall. It's an open air tank that has a water section. Looking for ground cover plants that I can use? Would like not to use moss if possible. Was looking into hydrocotyle sibthorpioides and hemianthus callitrichoides but although this soil is very...

    I'm hoping this will be a helpful thread. I'm sure like a lot of people I often let my viv go a bit too long before pruning. I love when it gets "jungley" but then it gets to the point where light is being blocked. And then I'm intimidated about where to start. I know the timing will depend...

    I'm new-ish to the Tampa area, and am in the process of building a paludarium. I'm looking for a local place that sells a variety of aquatic/terrestrial plants that'll work in a vivarium, but I'm having a hard time. It seems like it's mostly Orchids, Bromeliads, or large plants for homes. I'm...

    Including things like local classifieds, online classifieds, local shows, very specialized sites, and everything else. My primary source for plants has been GlassBoxTropicals, NEHERP, and Josh's Frogs for a long time. I'm only now branching out into more specialized sites like Bromeliad.com and...

The area I want to put it in has a wall on the south side directly touching the greenhouse, there will also be structures...
