    How to: Wiring Case Fans

    I was taking pictures on how to wire a case fan (DC) to an AC wall plug for another member and figured I would just make a post for everyone to see. This is good for getting air circulation inside of a humid terrarium which is great for plants, or for placing at the end of a light fixture to...

    MULTIPLE terrarium issues: mold/fungus, lighting, etc.

    I should have learned to not mess with success...right now a lot of my plants seem to be taking a turn for the worse. A couple weeks ago I decided to make room for a new order by splitting up all the plants I had in my 15g and using the 20 long as well. I ordered several potted plants from a...

    Vivarium

    Hi folks, I'm looking to get rid of a 55 gallon vivarium - It has an access panel on the side, so it can't be used as an aquarium (not filled to the top at least). It used to house my lowland nepenthes before I outgrew it - but it's a really nice tank. Not really looking for compensation - but...

    Planted Aquarium build lighting 2nd opinion

    Hey folks, I know at least of few of you are into planted tanks. Hopefully I can get second+ opinions on the lighting for a tank I'm rebuilding for my fiance. Her 20gallon long is a bit overgrown and over populated. Luckily, I have some supplies stored here to do a relatively easy upgrade for...

    20g long lighting

    Hey all, it's been a while! I am currently debating switching over my "tropical" dews and the few intermediate Neps I have into a 20 long and leaving my 15 gallon for the pygmies and pings. Right now my current collection is crammed into said 15 gallon, and everything is doing great but I want...

    heat mat..seedling vs reptile

    Hi all. I'm planning on setting up an aquarium as a sarrcenia nursery this fall. I've been doing some research and was wondering if there was a difference between using a seedling heat mat such as hydrofarm's or a reptile heating mat. I've looked for a used waterbed heater but they are too...

    Darlingtonia in full sun, 2011 update

    I improved the "setup" that I used last year, seen here. My plants are now growing in a large square net pot, that fits perfectly into one of the sides of the thermos cooler/water reservoir. Picked up the net-pot for $3.99 ;) Some of this year's pitchers... And finally, a flower...

    landscape using bogwood?

    Hello, new here and fairly new to the hobby. I have a question about landscaping a bog garden. I was wondering if I could use bogwood, purchased from a pet store for use in an aquarium, in a bog landscape? Or any other wood for that matter. I’m trying to create a natural landscape for some of my...

    Suitable HL species for me?

    I finally finished my HL setup :laaa: Oh gosh, how much I have dreamed about this! The terrarium (53L) is placed in our cellar. The lighting is 2X18W lamps and the heater is 50W aquarium heater. The cellar stays all the time 12-14C so I only have to heat it at day. Since I have been stuck with...

    Ideas for cooling down terrarium with water chiller?

    So i'm going to have a spare 1/13th hp aquarium chiller free to use here in a bit, and I'm trying to think of a creative way to use it to cool down this terrarium/greenhouse i'm putting together. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe having a tray of water, like say a large kitty litter pan, or a...

    HL nep lighting?

    Hi! I have read and heard many things about HL lighting. Some source says that they prefer better lighting than humidity, other says that they need hight humidity and high lighting. My terrarium is 53L and the size is 59cm(lenght) X 35cm(height) X 30cm(width). (I probably have to change it to...

    Cephalotus Follicularis from YG

    AT LAST, I got my ceph. I've grown this species once before, but I killed it after leaving it in it's water tray for a long long time.....:( Now though, I'm quite happy with this plant that I bought. Came at a nice size for RM60 (thats 20 USD to you folks out there). I don't expect it to grow...

    Can I satisfy everyone?

    So I recently came into possession of some CP's: Dionaea muscipula Drosera capensis Drosera binata Pinguicula 'John Rizzi' I wasn't quite prepared (barely at all) and now I'm looking for how to best care for these little guys. I have them all in a 10gal aquarium and it's either that or on my...

    Looking for advice on expanding collection

    Hi all, I've been keeping carnivorous plants for about a year (and stalking these forums almost as long). In the past, I've had success mostly with keeping plants outdoors (VFT, Sarracenia mutts, temperate sundews), although I've had a N. sanguinea doing wonderfully for me growing right besides...

    Hello from the middle of the USA. :)

    Hi everyone. :) I'm Sarah. I've recently been bitten by the plant bug when I rescued an orchid from Wal-Mart...which led to another...and another...and another, luckily though they stopped selling them on sale. After that I went through a phase where I rescued plants and would go through the...

    Saving a Drosera binata

    So I received a Drosera binata in the mail with a few other CPs and I was out of town when they got to the PO so they were left in baggies longer than I'm sure they would have liked. The other plants that came along are doing better and seem to be thriving it's the D. binata that I'm worried...

    My current indoor setup

    I know it's pretty sad, but it's what I've got to work with right now. A few weeks ago I changed the lights from just a plain aquarium setup to some cheap (but better than what I had) grow lights from lowes, and put foil around it. The N. Khasiana's old leaves got alittle discolored and spotty...
