Mini 2g terrarium


Can someone tell me what plants I can put in a 2 gallon tank, a plant that won't grow over the top-the tank is 8" high. Can I also use air plants? Thanks in advance!

Definately check out home depot. You can buy some great plants for like $2.50 a piece. You could use plants like cryptanthus, philodendron, maybe a small fern or two, and a whole variety of others (all of which I have bought from home depot). There are many plants that will outgrow an 2 gallon (not sure of the dimensions of an 2 gallon) but you can probably house them for a good year or so before having to remove them, like spider plants, some bromeliads, orchids, etc. And yes, you can use air plants, in fact I highly recomend you do, they look really great, and you can get them really small. And as Fish Newb pointed out there are various mosses you can use, although they can sometimes be difficult to keep alive. If you'd like to order online, sites like,, or T&C terrariums( have good selections.

Well, good luck!
