    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...

    https://elisabluh.tumblr.com/post/186829055686 ^video of them in action I've had some issues with plant death in my (non-frogged, yet) vivarium and noticed some mites on the glass, didn't think much of it based on the (many) threads I've looked at on the topic... but then I saw these guys that...

    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...

    Hey guys i'm researching a greenhouse to grow some orchids, bromeliads, and other vivarium plants in. I live in southern California (about an hour north of Andy's orchids). The area I want to put it in has a wall on the south side directly touching the greenhouse, there will also be structures...

    I have two large vivariums (3' tall x 2' wide x 18" deep) which house pairs of Leachies. I love these guys but they destroy most everything I plant in these tanks. I would prefer to keep these tanks natural but about the only thing I have found which survives their nightly rampaging and...

    Good Evening, I am in the process of building a fully planted vivarium. This won't be my first, as I have a chameleon with trees and pothos in a huge viv, but it will be my first custom backdrop fully planted dart frog enclosure. Currently I've followed the general strategies of pond foam/coco...

    Hello! I am an experienced gardener, lover of houseplants, and aquarist who is new to the study of Reptiles and Amphibians! I have been looking into bioactive vivariums (I think this might be the answer to my roommate's cat nomming on my houseplant collection). I enjoy propagation of plants...

    I didn't think about sterilizing plants until recently, so I just tried my hand with a new batch I got. I let the plants soak in water for 30 minutes, then let them soak in a 10% bleach solution for 12 minutes, then rinsed them well, and let them dry out for a few hours. They've all been...

    Hey everyone I currently have a Biopod Terra growing out, so far just hardscape, plants, moss, and Microfauna (Springtails, dwarf white and dwarf gray isopods). I work in a science lab and have access to a lot of leftover dry ice that is used for shipping. Would there be any noticeable benefit...

    I purchased some plants from Josh's Frogs on Thursday during their free plant shipping promotion, and I would like to know if anybody owns any of these themselves or has an opinion on them. The 4 plants I picked are all quick growing vines because I have a 40 gallon that I want to quickly fill...

    Hi all, so I think this is my first ever thread and im afraid its going to be a bit boring, sorry. I live very far up north in sunny Scotland (any Scots here?) and recently went and gathered a few small samples of moss growing around my local area. Now. I am in no way shape or form a botanist so...

    Hi All, I've finally completed most of the build in my first DF vivarium. It's a 24x18x24 Exo Terra with the mesh lid replaced with a solid piece of 5mm clear Acrylic (which I plan to put some small ventilation holes in). Background consists of black silicone on the glass, covered in expanding...

    This is my first post in a long time. I had to start a new account as I don't remember what my last one was. Haha. So I have a good deal of experience with breeding darts (mainly auratus) and mantellas (betsileo). I had to sell my buddies and their enclosures a few years back when I was...
