trying to build my first terratorium
    #2820124 - 06/23/04 08:46 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Well this is my plan for a terratorium. I was thinking about using the tub in tub method with a 100W fishtank heater to keep the temperature warm because the rest of the room can get pretty cold. Inside the terratorium i was thinkin about having water and perlitte on bottom to provide humidity and a screen where i put the casings. the green thing is a 50W fish tank air pump. Im gonna use a 15 W fish tank light on top, and the a exhaust on top there. The box is a rubbermaid 61 l storage box with transparant top.


Will this work?

Does the airpump needs to be on 24hrs or is it best to use a timer?

Heh thats a cool mspaint pic :smile:

Your 'terrarium' looks good but I think it might be overkill for your first grow!

I think it looks prett good, your terrarium should work fine.

As long as you get some kind of air exchange I think your ok.
I forget to fan mine for a day or two at a time.
Had no problems.

I honestly dont think you will need the heat either, but it greatly depends on ambient temp, so if you say your room is cooler than 70 most of the time, then sure, heat it.


How about putting a cup of water in the terrarium, and then use that air pump you have with a bubbler stone on the end inside the cup of water. the bubbles will put moisture in the air. You probably wouldnt need it running 24/7 either, more like 15min every 3 hours, maybe more maybe less.

If your chamber is tightly sealed, humidity will stay in the very well. I use an ultrasonic humidifier, yet it only needs runs for 1 min every 4 hours
