Watching to see these come together. Looks like a nice build.

Thanks for all the comments! I planted the HC yesterday. Hope i can keep this stuff alive. I also picked up two more cool succulents. I will probably be planting the terrarium tomorrow.

Planted the HC in the Mini S about a week ago. Might pick some more up to try and speed things up. Looks like this will take ages to fill in.

Made an impulse buy yesterday. It's a 8x8x8 inch cube, or 20C i guess. I'm bored waiting for the HC to fill in so hopefully this will help ease my pain. Speaking of which, i also bought some more HC while i was there. Now if only it would fill in...

Looking good! Fwiw, the cryptanthus likes significantly more water than the lithops and the echeveria do. Also a high risk of etiolation with those succulents unless you're really blasting them with light.

Thanks! And yeah, i figured it needed more H2O so i've been watering it while being careful not to get the succulents wet. That's a 36watt CFL, i hope that's enough. It sure is bright. For now everything seems to be putting out new leaves, so i guess i'll just have to wait and see how they do. I figure i can try different plants if some don't work out.

Fwiw, the succulents will take as much light as you can give them, and more. Think full sun, southern exposure light levels. I think in the long run, tropicals and house plant type choices will be more sustainable and manageable. Rob's violets has an awesome selection of terrarium plants organized by whether or not they will survive in an uncovered environment. Might be worth checking out.
