Idea for water control in terrarium
Okay, here's an idea. I don't own a terrarium, and have little to no experience with them. I am planning on setting one up, though. However, I do know that getting rid of excess water can be troublesome when it has collected in the substrate, leading to the rotting of plant roots. I have no idea whether this idea has already been tried, but I was thinking, why not set up an undergravel filter plate in the terrarium, that excess water will run under, and can then be siphoned out, while not disturbing the substrate? Anyone tried this? I don't want to be plagiarizing something already out there, I just haven't really looked in depth.
