    Hello everyone! I decided to hop on here and create an account in search for some help. I’m new to keeping dart frogs, and a few months ago I set up a vivarium. I have an exo terra 18x18x24x set up with a mist king and I’m housing 4 Santa Isabel dart frogs and 1 mourning gecko. Keeping my plants...

    How important is it to sterilize plants? I’ve rinsed all of my plants (they are all from Neherp, except some clippings from a wandering Jew I have kept inside my house for a couple years). I’m not super worried about hitchhikers, I’m more worried about bacteria. None of my wood has been cleaned...

    HI! :)This is my first post here I'm an old hand keeping tanks (mainly biotope fish tank), but I have had an itch for many years to start vivarium and terrarium tanks because there are so many cool plant nurseries where I buy my fish. I selected the plants myself.I would really appreciate any...

    Hi all, I'm setting up a thumbnail tank and ordered a variety of plants for it, some from The Biodude. I also have a desert beetle terrarium so I ordered a little elephant feed bush that I thought would be pretty for that. It's a non-toxic species so I thought it would be fine. I basically...

    It’s been years since anyone started a thread discussing the general success of Paphiopedilum in vivariums. Anyone have any successes/failures worth noting in the last few years? Any helpful techniques or ideal species? Planning an orchid heavy first vivarium and wanted to include a paph as a...

    Hello I am setting up a few terrariums for dart frogs and I would like your opinions of plants and other fixtures (sticks/logs/rocks/shelves/backgrounds etc). I am new at building tank setups - this one you see first below will house Ranitomeya Fantastica "True Nominals". The skeleton of the...

    Hi everyone, I have this dream of a Terrarium with a Background thats fully covered by Parthenocissus Discolor. My Idea was to use a technique that I have seen in homemade Moss poles. You use chickenwire or Something similar to create the Shape you want (usually a half moon) and use hard...

    Hello and happy Friday to all! I was wondering if bromeliads could grow happily in a basking area of 93-99°F? I really like how my bromeliads are planted but am more than okay with planting them elsewhere if such temperatures are not optimal for a happy life.

    Hi All, If anyone is interested in acquiring gesneriad plant material on Long Island in New York there is a gesneriad society show and sale April 2nd and 3rd. So you can get a hold of relatively inexpensive (under $10) plant material in the family gesneriaceae such as: Aeschynanthus, Alsobia...

    Pretty much everyone knows the ABG name around here as substrate wizards, but their conservatory has some most mind-boggling tropical plant collections. I'm lucky enough to have been gifted a membership and can pop in any time, as I did yesterday while my power was out for a few hours. I'm no...
  13. General Discussion
    I have been reading lots of posts about issues with not seeing frogs and one of the reasons i keep seeing is your vivariums to bright. So with that said what is the line between to bright and not bright enough for the plants?

    I'm curious, do any of you guys prorogate your plants? Like, do you guys take cuttings or split plants and grow them elsewhere or outside of the tank they originate from?

    hello everyone, I got this monstera Thai con recently and I noticed the new leaf shooting out is starting to yellow for some reason! I actually took the plant out a few weeks ago because I thought.. (continued below photo) that plant had root rot (It didn't) and I totally forgot to water it...

    Does anyone have experience with cutting/plant mystery boxes/setup kits from Glass Box Tropicals (or elsewhere?) I’m in the process of my first tank setup (18x18x24) for leucs, and initial costs are definitely climbing. I’d really like calathea, marcgravia, green bromeliads, smaller peperomia...

    On average, how long does it take for air plants to "root" securely enough to remove any supports? I've had mine in the viv for a few months, and they still aren't secure without support.
