This beautiful little Begonia is well suited to any size terrarium, with leaves that reach no more than 3″, on stems only slightly longer (4″). The texture of the leaves is mildly corrugated. Flowers are bright yellow and occur in abundance on a mature plant. It is a hybrid created by Mike Kartuz using Begonia […]
This is a shallow 1 gallon bowl housing various unidentified Bucephalandra. The substrate is a thin layer of turface, with some lava rock and wood as a growing surface for the plants. It gets medium light and has nearly no ventilation. I believe some of these are ‘brownie’ type Buces. An Aridarium species pictured below, […]
This tank is about a year old now, and houses over 50 species of plants. It stands 36Lx18Wx26T and has zoomed cork tiles on three sides. The substrate is a mix of turface and red infield conditioner in no specific ratios. The primary purpose of this tank is to give shingling species room to grow […]
This tank has been set up about three years now, and is home to 12 R. biolat. It measures 24x18x26. The background is cork and the substrate is 100% red infield clay. It has been more difficult recently to find egg clutches due to all the plant growth but there are a few puddles where the […]
This small bowl houses Drosera capensis and Dionaea muscipula. I’ve bought venus fly traps many times and never been able to keep them alive (they rot and turn brown after a few months) but this one seems to be doing well. This bowl sits 5-6″ beneath a Sunlight Supply single tube LED for 13 hours […]
Returning from Richard’s Greenhouse with two flats and three grocery bags filled with plants requiring high humidity, I had to quickly scrounge to find space for them all. One of the ferns even got a little droopy during the 30-minute drive home. The terrarium they ended up going in was meant for glassfrogs (on the right). […]
For two years now I’ve been putting all my “stragglers” in this terrarium. Anything that isn’t doing well in my plant bins goes in here. The Bryophytes and orchids are just starting to come into their own, and this Pleurothallid is more or less always in bloom. There are also a trove of epiphytic ferns […]
This one is difficult to photograph well from the front, but is more photogenic from a birds eye view thankfully. It has been setup since 2014 and was my first attempt at building a terrarium from scratch. It is a 14″ cube with a sliding glass lid that comes out the front and is held in […]
This is a 22x18x21 inch terrarium for a large group of R. uakarii.
Some shots of the R. biolat vivarium from this fall. Over the past two years I’ve probably placed close to 20 different Bryophyte species in here, and for a while they disappeared. Slowly, they have started to grow back and spread.
