There are many ways to set up a terrarium for less than 50 bucks......

you have to ask yourself a few questions first.....

1. how many cakes am i willing to take care of?
2. how much room do i have to make a terarrium?

peace

well, a self sufficient terrarium =$$

since we both know you'r looking for something inexpensive here we go:

for your 1st time that is........

i suggest you invest in some Perilite for your humidity......

moisten the perilite..... do not leave any water sitting there (contrary to many other posts).......

this is how you prepare perilite

1. open the bag
2. fill it with water
3. drain out as much excess water as possible
4. apply your perilite to the bottom of your 'terrarium'

after all of this is done slap your cakes on that bad agent and wait for the magic!

Love.

Get an opaque 73qt Sterilite bin. Cut a hole in the lid and use some kind of sealing glue to attach a piece of plexiglas over the hole. Cut another hole about 3" from the bottom on the side, about 1"x1", and glue a filter disc over it on the outside. Fill with one bag of damp perlite (about 2").



For light, get any fluorescent light, put it on a 12/12 timer, and suspend it above the terrarium. Easy enough.

For air, get an adjustable fish tank air pump. Run the hose through the handle of the container, attach to an airstone, and bury in the perlite. Of course, for this, you will have to build a filtered box to put the pump in to filter out random air comtams.



This setup is about the cheapest way I've seen to make it self-automated. Just add water to the perlite every so often. It can easily hold six or more cakes, or two to four casing pans. Just like most projects, if you want to do it cheap you have to build stuff.

Making a terr for under 50 is easy. Buy an aquarium and some pearlite or even a humidifier.
