Planted native terrarium! What can live in it?
I just made this 0 dollar planted terrarium, I don’t know how long to water it for or anythingg any advice is appreciated. It’s my 1st time scaling with lots of unique materials I’d on plants would be nice too
I have one of these in a jar. First, get a nice high light for it and a lid. It will likely need a lot of humidity. There’s not really much else to it. It’s one of those hit or miss things. Sometimes they work great, sometimes they flop.
Can I use ceran wrap and ambient and natural sunlight? I added fluval gro+ fertilizer and watered it with a syringe using my aquarium water
Is a room light sufficient, I put a lamp on it and my window is cold. It’s Indiana where it gets freezing in the winter and burning hot in the summer, so a perfect temperate environment should work right?
Ceran wrap yes, but sunlight might make it too hot long term
That should work great!! But if the plants show a sign of too much/little light be prepared to adjust! best of luck!
What is the difference i put the highest up light for it
And angled it sorta away
I agree with the humidity thing. And you need very strong lighting. Ambient light won’t suffice. I’ve grow all sorts of native misses in jars and tanks. I use LED lighting because of how bright it is. Being near a window won’t be good. For winter, it works perfectly, but summer will cause it to overheat and everything inside to die.
The sun’s light creates a lot more heat than a lamp sunlight would end up heating the terrarium to unsafe levels, similar to why you don’t want to put a small tank next to a window
