I thought I would share a custom build I am doing to fit an empty spot on my wall stand :). Here is the initial progress.

I finally got the background put together.

I went with the zoo med Beaked moss, crunched that up into smaller pieces, then I went with a moss growing mix that I smash on top of the beak moss. I hate using just coco dust, and I am hopeful that this will sprout some moss out in the next year or so.... that would be sweeeet!

After having a disaster with this bad boy on thursay night, ( the bottom glass panel broke) i was able to get a new piece installed and then planted today. Here are some photo's. I still have other plants I may want to fit in here :) I'll post up the species list soon..






After watching my 115 gallon grow in after I put over 80 plant species in, I decide to limit myself on future vivs. I am planning on having a few background creepers take over like the marcgravia and raphiodophora, while allowing the orchids a chance to fill in over the next few years.

A few cool things I have in there is:

Piper decoratum
Pearcea hyperocritifolia?
Syngonium rayii
Microsorum linguiforme
Trichosalpinx memor
Goodyera hispida
Macodes petola
Chamaeranthe venosum
Neo. "mo pepper"

My goal was to not use ANY generic plants, other than the neo fireballs of course

I've got a 1.2 trio of R. variabilis EU todd kelly line going in there :) Unfortunately my room gets a little to hot for mantella's with the pumilio and all. The only ones I keep at the moment is viridis and laevigata. I'm pleading with the wife to let me keep a viv in the cooler downstairs area so I can get a nice group of M. aurantiaca going, so we will see how that goes......
