My "SUPER TERRIUM" plans, SOUND GOOD?
    #1282860 - 02/05/03 07:21 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

**Ok i have to many terriums to keep track of so i was thinking of putting some time and effort into making 1 big one. Making it cost efficient, easier to maintain, and the ability to put all my attention to just those 1 settings. Instead of 5 or 6.**
MY IDEA: My idea is to use plexi glass as the walls floor and top. And to make a wooden frame out of 2x4s into the shape of a rectangle. The dimensions will be 2' deep 8' long 3' wide. I will have a 1.HUMIDIFIER inside the terrium, with eventually an 2.AIR EXCHANGE SYSTEM with filter, a 3.DIGITAL THERMOMETER/HUMIDIFIER and have the outside of the walls and floor of the terrium spray painted with black paint. (so pins will grow more straight). For LIGHTING i will buy 2 48" shop lights with 2 lights side by side total of 4.
OTHER NOTES:i would use a cauken gun to make it air tight.
**QUESTION** Does anyone have this sort of homemade set up? Do you think this is a good idea? also How would i connect the plexi glass to the wood without the plexi glass cracking? I think screws will crack it.

Find a glue that will work, and seal it with silicon.

I'm not in favor. If the 'big' terrarium gets a contam, you are surely fucked. If you have 2 or 3 bins, you reduce the risk of spreading contamination and increase your chances of sucessful fruitings.. Good luck!

Whats liquid nails?
And the other guy: So what your saying is lay the plexi glass on a hard flat surface and drill a hole then just stick it up to the wood stick the screw threw the hole and screw it into the wood?

Trust me liquid nails will support anything it comes in contact with. It's like the Daddy of super glue and can take any weather conditions..

Ill try the screw thing with a piece of scrap plexi glass, i think i know its just gonna crack. BUT if it doesnt ill use that, but regardless i think im gonna go with that liquid nail stuff or both at the same time if the screws work. IM STILL OPEN TO ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Anyone ever heard of using a whole room as a terrarium. Theres a guy around here (Michigan) who supposodly has a whole room set up with a bunch of casings. The yield is phenomenal from what I hear. Prob wouldnt be too hard to set up either with a little hard work sealing up all the cracks and keeping humidity up there.

Take a drill place a drill bit in it. Place the bit where you want the hole. Dont press hard or you will crack the plexy glass let the drill do the work. And make sure the drill bit isnt smaller than the screw or it will crack.
