Is my terranium usable?
    #663677 - 06/05/02 07:26 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Hey everyone,

My terranium is a 10 gallon fish tank. It has a 2 liter pickle jar with a 10 gallon fish tank heater in it. The pickle jar heater heats the terranium and also keeps the humidity at 95%-100% so i dont need to use perlite.

What do you think of my cheap terranium? Will the heating/humidity system work fine for pinning/fruiting?

Fd

Yes, but what are you planning to do for fresh air exchanges? BTW, it's called a terrarium.

Just fan regularly to solve your air exchange problem. Nice setups are overated. I truly believe most just cut back on maintenance and make the cultivator's life easier. I personally have nothing automated and just manually raise/lower humidity and temps. I love having to check up on them several times a day, I learn so much from this exposure. Thanks.

I think you would be better off with perlite. I could be wrong though, ive never actualy done this, but i think the temp should be in the 70's when pinning/fruiting. The heater will probably bring it up to 80+, does it? Perlite is really cheap, and if its as effective as people here claim, its probably worth useing.

I dont think i will use perlite. Why would i? The heater keeps the humidity at a constant 95%-100% 24 hours a day so why use perlite? The aquarium is going to be used both as a incubator and a terrarium. The heater when set on max produces 85 degrees. When i lower it to only half the max temp then it brings it to 73. So i think it will be fine.

Any more thoughts/ideas about my cheap-ass-setup?
