pop bottle terrarium?
    #3155316 - 09/20/04 01:00 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

HI,
I have two cakes that have been born into pop bottle terrariums. I placed damp paper towels with 1/100 or 1/50 bleech in the bottom of the terrariums. I have one thats a week old and one thats a day old. The week old one is covered in a thick fluffy layer of white fuzz but no pin heads. I fan it 2 times a day and give it some indirect sun light for at least an hour a day. IS the humidity too high or is something else wrong. Please help?

Thanks

Pharm

fan 4 times a day and give them more light. I would just leave it out on a shelf so it gets indirect sun for a few hours a day and also get the room light. A polyfill wad at the top of the bottle and on the sides at near bottom would work well too for air exchange.

I would cut out a tin foil disk for a sterile place for the cakes to sit on. Also perlite works much better for humidification. A polyfill wad in place of the cap helps with ventilation between fannings.

Is the yellowish brown stuff in the second picture normal?

Grower is right the paper towels have green colored images. I don't think the left one is contaminated but its a week old and it hasn't gotten any pin heads on it. Also the paper towels have a small part of bleech so im not too worried about sterile cake bottoms. I will get some tin foil tomorrow anyway. How long to pin heads take to form?
