The most common type of aquatic turtle is the red-eared slider. These turtles can make great pets, and in fact, they are very common to be in classrooms around the United States.
I was mesmerized and inspired by the possibilities. The year’s gardening season and holidays had passed, and the funk of winter without anything other than spring to anticipate had set in. I was itching to get some dirt under my fingernails and have something tangible to show for it. I set off to create my own fanciful mini-forest with a shapely glass vessel, a couple of plants, soil, decorative gravel, and charcoal.
The Terrarium workshop Venus fly trap needs lots of sunlight so it should be kept outdoors or in a well-lit location. It also has a dormant season where it will need to be kept cool for two to three months. In this time most of the foliage will die back, which is normal. If you live in a warm climate you can keep the plants in your refrigerator for the dormant season.
The fact is your beardie will require enough space to live and roam. You will first need to know if you have enough space at home to house a large aquarium and if you do you can start searching for deals online to find used aquariums. New aquariums can be quite pricy.
Put a layer of Sphagnum moss on top of the charcoal. This is optional but Sphagnum wiry and dry and will keep the soil from falling into the pebbles below.
A Wardian Case which is also known as a plant Terrarium is excellent for growing herbs indoors. It was invented by Wardian Case and is terrific for humidity loving tropical herbs like ferns. It is so easy to use that you will get hooked to it. The Terrarium is generally a glass case that holds moisture so you can conveniently forget to water the herbs. The moisture is sustained for days and sometimes weeks. Almost any type of herb that is not very hungry for space will survive in Terrarium Workshop.
Turtles spend a lot of their time in the water. It is where they swim, eat, drink, and release their waste. Over time, the water will become dirty, and this will make the turtle susceptible to diseases if left unchanged.
If your orchid has been in the same pot for two years or more, it is time to repot during the period in-between blooming. It may be too large for its pot or the medium in which it is planted may have overly decomposed. Be gentle and repot the orchid in osmunda fiber, fir bark, gravel, peat moss, or another material good for growing orchids. This should give it a good start on its next period of growth and new blooms.
