My desktop Palu

My little desktop Paludarium. I started it about two months ago and the plants inside seem to enjoy it!
The humidity stay around 92 and I usually leave it alone. All I do is turn the light off and on and put a little water in once a month... I love the ease of it! (it's a 2.5 gallon covered by cling wrap and lit by a desk lamp.)

That is awesome! Makes me want to have one now on my desk.

Any inhabitants?

Thanks . It took off VERY quickly and i think a lot of the plants in it prefer to be grown this way. The anubias surely does!

Cannabrain, I'd love to see photos if you ever get a chance !

Shinycard, Thanks! I highly recommend it. It's extremely low maintenance, very cheap and at the very least you can get some fragile plants going strong in it before switching them to your aquarium. As for inhabitants... It's such a small environment , I'm not sure anything aside from the snails, micro worms, and daphnia would survive in it...
