Emersed anubias nana help
Does anyone know the minimum humidity required to grow petite nana anubias emersed? I want to put some in a vivarium I'm setting up, but only if it will stay alive in a fairly arid climate.
Please don't quote me. When I had a vivarium. I tried to keep it humid and also spraying the plants. As for humidity levels I don't know and don't even know how to test levels. Would love to see pics though.
you can monitor the humidity with a humidity gauge. the set I have for my corn snake came with 2 thermometers and a humidity gauge. idk on the actual humidity required. I decided to go with just fake plants in mine as the humidity is to hard for me to keep up. I was spraying the tank down 4-5 times a day. What are you keeping in it if I might ask?
I can't keep the tank humid, as the toads that will be in it don't like it humid. I will mist daily but humidity will be relatively low, below 70% if I remember correctly.
I'm sure it will grow. I found this on google it may help..
Hey junebug, it should be fine as long as you are maintaining the humidity to some extent. I keep my petite submersed currently, but have kept lots of it out in the greenhouse with no issue. Just keep an eye on it for the firs few days and if it looks like its wilting at all then it's not enough humidity.
:/ if it starts to wilt, I suppose I can toss it in a fish tank. This vivarium is not going to be very humid. Oh well, it's worth a try and I really love the way it looks in my head, with tiny black and yellow toads crawling all over it lol.
jetajockey - how humid do you keep your greenhouse?
Not super humid, ive actually kept the doors open on it 24/7 since it got hot this year. It does mist in there 5 times a day, but overall the humidity isn't crazy high. If your viv is going to have a lid on it, its probably going to be good.
Just a screen top, though. Unless I find that doesn't keep it quite humid enough for the toads. It gets just a little dryer here on occasion than what they like, but I'm thinking a water feature in the tank will keep things fairly stable. Or so they tell me over on the frog forum.
