Default New Planted Terrarium

Here is some pics of a 45x45x60 zoomed I have set up for a friend. I was well happy with the finished project. I am just waiting for the lighting hood to arrive.

The terrarium Cork panel fixed in place.


Vine cut to size.


Hydroleca, Membrane, substrate, and vine in place.


First plant in place.


The rest of the Broms in place.


The finished project with the rest of the plants, moss, and wood in place.

very nice but that red plant looks like it takes up alot of space its the 1st thing you see, would look nicer with a smaller one so your eyes catch the whole thing as its very nice

I like it, including the large plant...but it would look to have more depth if you were to take the background half way around both sides too...it is very effective and creates interesting shadows.

You are a good friend...what is going in there?

I have cork on the sides of my vivs but this one will be on the side in the front room and the side don't look good from out side this is why I did not do the sides

Like it.

Where are the plants from? I've only ever seen those Broms on Bert Westerhman's site.
