6ft terrarium

Just back from Cameron. Got some mosses, pitcher plants and wild orchids. Cant wait to setup the tank...so, just do it! The base with remaining holland sand. Then covered by coconut fiber with soil.

Position of drift woods.



Planting...


Pitcher plant (collected at the road side.)


This one bought from flower nursery. RM17.


Bird nest... collected from Cyber Jaya office road side.


Unknown wild orchid. (there are few more not in the picture.)


Finally up...2 36W PL tubes and a fan. Tank fully covered. 3-4 hours just to seperate the mosses and putting inside the tank.

Dom,

Where did you get those Sarracenia? I know a botany Ph.D who has studied that genus for his whole career, I'm sure he'd be interested in info if they're wild collected.

Thanks,
Phil

Hi Phil,

It is from Cameron Highland - Malaysia. Very cooling and high humidity place.

Thank you Dom. We've got a number of similar species that are native to where I live here in the Southeast US. I'll have to let my friend know about the Malaysian species.

Absolutely stunning. Everything looks extremely healthy.

Any plans to keep some creatures?
