good plants for a terrarium?
    #2201346 - 12/25/03 11:16 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Any suggestions on a plant that will live well in a terrarium? Basically I'd like an organic CO2 buster. Plus I think the boys might get a little lonely when I'm not around.

unless you plan on leaving the lights on 24/7 that plant will create lots of C02 when its dark. C02 is good for colonization though and in that case anything green and leafy is a good plant, go to like walmart or someting a leftover pointsetta, it'll be cheap and it'll do the job.

I thought plants used up CO2?

as long as they are photosynthesizing they'll produce both oxygen and C02, but small amount of C02, but when you put a plant in the dark like it will be when its in the terrarium with the shrooms, it'll be throwing off lots of C02 and no oxygen.

hmm... well the light is on about 20 hours a day because it's needed for heat, with the light on it stays at about 76F.

Would the 4 hours of darkness produce more CO2 than the 20 hours of light would break down?
