Here is a terrarium ive been working on for awhile and is still not yet finished. It uses a high powered peltier cooling system to drop the temp down to around 50*F or lower at night. It can get up to 80 during the day. Using T5 lights and a small metal fan for extra circulation at night. I also installed a rain system using plastic tubing and a koi pond pump. So far it appears promising for a suitable naturalized growing environment. Goin to add several kinds of mosses to grow on the walls and floor. Any advise on what else i can do to improve it?
1 rajah 2 villosa's 2 clone 1 hamatas 1 seed grown hamata 1 BE hamata cutting 1 maxima X TM 1 ventricosa X TM 1 clone 2 TM (all red) 1 macrophylla 1 jamban 1 lowii from mt trusmadi 1 lowii from a diff location, its the slower growing of the 2 aka slowii 1 sibuyansis X hamata 1 singalana from tujuh 1 burbidgeae 1 burbidgeae X edwardsiana 1 kasiana X alata 1 veitchii x platychila
All nepenthes at the moment, goin to add some treated live forest mosses as well a couple more nepenthes. Ive got the temp stable now so they should all start looking really good in a few months
heres an update to what ive done, almost finished. Instead of the bulky tubing i was goin to use for the rain system i got a cooling mist system instead. Works great and hooks right up to the reverse osmosis filter. Ive added live tree moss to create a living wall for the background. There is a person in the sell/trade section selling this moss. Your plants will love it in the terrarium, just make sure you have plenty of air flow.
for the backdrop, i just used great stuff spray foam, black and tan caulk, and coco bedding. The misting system i use is a patio misting system, has 7 nozzels, works great, will bring any hot(80*F+) environment down 20* as well
