Hey there, so Ive recently been reunited with one of my babys my friend took care of for me. I made this viv 1 year ago out of an old 1940s display case I bought for too much money. Originally it had doors on the back but I made a wooden track for the front and siliconed in a bunch of glass. My goal is to make a scientific looking frog room from the 1800s. I was thinking about replacing alot of the slug ridden lepanthes and pleuros but I would have to dry ice bomb and kill all other microfauna so... enjoy.

Actually appears as if you snatched a section straight out of Nature..

Does not look Contrived at all..
How long has it been up and Running?
Any plans to share so Cuttings?

What type of lights are you using? How Long of a Cycle?
How Do you Water?
Any Ventilation system when Closed Up?

That looks awesome! That is kind of the look i am going for kinda simple and not crazy over loaded with plants. I have a plant that looks just like that except my leaves seem to have like a little peach fuzz on them. if thats how its going to look when it starts to really grow then i'm super EXCITED! Thanks for sharing!

Its been growing in for about a year and a half, up until a few days ago it
only had 2 39 watt t5s over for 10 hours a day
it but I added 2 more to get the bottom mossy.
Theres 2 misters that go off for 3 min once a day and theres a 2 inch vent
at the top. I can spare some cuttings, pm me.

Thanks Ron. Its actually another weed, B. prismatocarpa. It was just getting hit by the mister too hard and grew in a little scraggly.
Ah, that's right...I was thinking the same plant but put the wrong name down when I posted. I regularly have to rip it out of another tank to prevent it from overtaking a few other slower growing plants.

Looking forward to seeing how the tank and room progresses.

What is the plant in the sixth picture? Beautiful vivarium congrats!
Is that an orchid on the 6th photo? If so, do you have the name?
Trichosalpinx rotundata

This is a brilliant display. Simple in design and it showcases the growth of the Marcgravia and Syngonium beautifully.

Well done!
