Default Looking to create a terrarium

I have this 4x2x30" tank just taking up space in my room with nothing in it atm, i was thinking of turning it into a terarium, but there dosn't seem to be much information around, on how to do this in terms of plants, lighting, substrate or whether an all glass tank is the best option for a terarium? What do you all think?

you need to first think of the species of amphibian you would like to keep - then look into what requirements it would need!

I dont want any amphibians in it, i just want plants, but this is the most relevant section as alot of people create terrariums for their amphibians. Maby terrarium is the wrong word for what im looking for, i want to grow plants in the tank creating a minature habitat but without the amphibians.

Umm.. dont they call that a indorr-garden?

Yeah, it would be the same, but most terrairums are set-up with plants needing high humidity I.e Ferns. It would probably be better to ask this on a gardening forum

Try there for idea's and also do a search on here for living plants... there are a few threads where we discuss plants etc.... And good luck... for some of us, setting up a living terranium is just as enjoyable as when we get the animals to go in them..... J
