Just finished putting the background on this vivarium which I got last Saturday from the recently held Reptile Super Show in Pomona, it is made out of plastic ( polycarbonate). I'll be putting some plants next...

Nice! Keep us updated as it grows in.
Thank you, yes I do intend to update this every now and then. There are already new roots developing from the mini orchids and one of the Neoregelia is in bloom right now.

Very nice tank. Do you have a drainage layer? You may want to add one if you don't to keep the soil from getting water logged.

Thank you, yes this tank is well thought of regarding the construction. There is a good size of compartment underneath (which also serves as the base or stand) where I have a good amount of hydroton to keep the soil from getting logged.

Just an update, new plants were introduced and I have to change the CFL. I thought I have a 6500K installed at first but it was a 5000k lamp...
