I have a question I am sure that you could help me with. Once upon a time I used Pothos in a terrarium and I found that I was getting a lot of gnats at one point for the soil. Do you know what causes this Is it to much water Could it have been do to not cleaning off the roots prior to planting. I am just really curious because I would like to try this again.

It seems that I had all of the necessary things but the bugs where an added piece that I could really do without. My thoughts are that maybe they came because I had the terrarium too wet. Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time your great videos on YouTube and your awesome site. Because of you I am now thinking of getting in the the posion dart frogs.

Chances are good some larvae or eggs came in with the pothos. But if you have other plants in the house, they may have come in with those, and flying adults looking for a suitable place to lay eggs found your terrarium. Either way, it is a good idea to clean as much soil off the roots of new plants as possible.

Tadpoles need plenty of oxygen in their water, something many people struggle with. You can have an aerator running gently, especially if the water is very still, but this could stress and disrupt plants.

Greenhouses and retailers often spray plants with pesticides, fertilizers and other substances that may harm your pet.

They are vascular plants, but unlike many other, more advanced lineages, ferns produce via spores rather than seeds. There are more than 10,000 described species within the fern lineage, and they are found in a variety of habitats. However, most of the species used as vivarium plants inhabit forests.

Many orchids are somewhat delicate, and they must be provided with very specific conditions to thrive as vivarium plants. However, there are a few species that are relatively easy to maintain in the terrarium.

Founded in 2012, Glass Box Tropicals initially specialized in terrarium and vivarium plants suited to accompany poison dart frogs. Since then, we have grown to provide one of the largest selections of terrarium-specific plants available online. We also offer house plants, terrariums, and supplies for animal husbandry and terrarium construction.

One of the joys of keeping dart frogs is setting up a beautiful terrarium filled with tropical plants. After all, these plants will be there for you to look at all the time, even when the frogs are not visible. Here we will examine appropriate plants for the thumbnail dart frog terrarium.

The tropical plants section at any nursery will offer a variety of 4-inch pots with assorted tropical plants. Most of them will grow and thrive in your terrarium, but the problem with many of them is that they simply grow too fast and get too large for the relatively small terrariums most keepers house their frogs in. You can use these plants and attempt to keep them pruned back, or you can select plants that will remain smaller and not grow as fast. Regardless, as time goes by, you will need to get the scissors out and do some cutting, if only
