It has taken me almost a year to finish my display viv, but it's finally done and looking good. Right now it houses 0.0.2 D. Tinctorius Patricias and they are getting big fast!



One of the inhabitants



And just for fun, the newest imitator froglet.



Hope you all like it!

Nice job. I love the way the broms are on the top and the valley in the middle. Very natural. I'm sure your darts are going to love it.


too many frogs to list in the allowed space

It's amazing how fast the tall plant on the right has grown. In the past 2 weeks, it has grown probably 6 inches. It's a super easy plant to grow and propagation is super simple. Cut it off, dip it in hormone and stick it in dirt. Done!

I also have the plant on the right [dwarf schefflera(I have the non variagated form)]. It grows extremely easily, but it will get big. In its native Australia it is a small bushy tree.

Thats fine with me as its very easy to take cuttings of and i can keep the original plant under control. Actually very easily.

Your tank looks awesome! It looks really natural, how many times would you clean a viv like that out?

It looks great and I am in total envy of your patricias!!

The plant on the right (the dwarf schefflera) does grow big. I was given a very small potted plant of it six years ago from a friend for my birthday. The think is freakin' huge now. I have repotted it every year for the last six years and if it gets any bigger I won't be able to find a plant stand that will hold it. And yes, it is very easy to get starts from. I recently redid my FBTs and upgraded them to a much bigger tank and put one of my clippings in their tank. So, you will have to prune, but if mine is any indication it's really hard to kill the things!

Clippings are super easy to take. For just starting them out, I'll probably just plant the clipping in a bucket, saran wrap the top and then throw a dome light over it. Easy peezy, japanesey. But yes, it grows extremely fast and I might just get a big house plant out of it also. In any case, I really like the height that it gives to the viv and how sturdy it is. More than once, I've seen my patricias hanging out in it like a tree house. The only bad thing about how tall it grows is that it really hides my orchid from being seen unless you're looking in through the top. Oh well, it seems to be doing great by the way that its growing super fast.

I really think its funny how when people come over, they'll pull a chair up right to the front and stare at it for a good while!

Joao Avo---It is a 37 gallon column tank (20x18x24). The plant on the bottom right is selaginella kraussiana, the plant in the middle is riccia fluitans, and the one on the left is unknown to me. I lost the tag somewhere.
