a little about myself:
I’ve been growing many different house plants for years now. Some rare, some very common.
After my first pothos and snake plant. I quickly became obsessed with acquiring new, exciting plants.
Filling a space with plants brings me happiness. Through caring, watching them grow etc. My favorite color is green. So naturally I enjoy being surrounded by it.
A fellow plant mom, informed me that a great place to acquire plants is at our local reptile expo.
I’ve wanted to raise a pet snake since I was a very little girl. I intended on picking up some plants, inquiring about tropical snake care and its specifics. Soon came to the conclusion that snakes would damage the plants I had hoped to add.
How I decided on dendros:
Didn’t consider darts until about 2 years later. When I became serious about a bioactive build. For a cattleya aclandiaeorchids orchid, a lepanthopsis floripecten orchid, philodendron squmiferum, and a scindapsus treubii moonlight. As well as some others that needed care more dialed in.
Headed over to a local pet shop that specializes in tropical amphibians, reptiles, arachnids etc. As I heard they had people working there, well versed in bioactive setups.
It was there that I fell in love with a dendrobates tinctorius azureus. Never had I seen one up close, in her home before. The frog seemed so happy to be immersed with foliage. Not to mention it came up to the glass! I was unaware there were frogs out there, completely unbothered by human presence. Definitely a great character to have along side plants I intend to do maintenance (take cuttings, corms, overgrowth etc) from.
As of January 2nd I was able to purchase the exact individual I first saw! Alongside another tank mate (believe to be male) that she was housed with.
Been browsing the site for awhile now. Finally decided to make my own account since I had some specific questions. I couldn’t seem to find answers to. Expect to see another post in beginner discussion soon lol
