Here is finale terrarium - so now I have t5H0 at back and 2 LEDS at the front on top to give the plants some more light and bring that radiant temperature up and the fan for air circulation- Huge thank you to Willy for your custom LEDs and Fan. Fantastic. I recommend anyone on here to willy

I’m just monitoring temperatures atm and have started to move and repot my plants that was in humidity dome outside and the new Spats and HELI minor and Ceph!

So please let me know all on how these plants look and the setup and if I need to re-adjust anything?

What is best speed for the fan? Does this change the temperature in the tank if on different speeds? I’ve currently got it on low.
Should the fan be kept on at night?

-I repotted the ceph and put D. Hams with it, once they grow bigger I will put moss top dressing.
- All the Spats are together.
- I will replant the HELI minor when it’s bigger.

No more room for plants lol
I finally transferred all my D. Spats and D Tok and D Adelaes.
I’m just hoping my Cephalotus and HELI minor will be okay!
Had full lights and set up running for few hours and temps about 25C in there / 80% humidity .

Just a quick word of caution: it looks like theres a good bit of water sitting in the crown of your ampullaria; that can cause the growth tip to rot.
Good airflow can help mitigate issues like that but its still a good idea to try to keep water out of the crown.
thank you PP for the advice! :D

Wonder if you guys can give me some advice please?
I had fan on running 24/7 in the tank, it does suck out humidity by 20% so it’s always 60%. And temps stay about 23/24C. It’s hard to tell from two dollar themo eter lol

My lights go on from 7am-7pm
is it better to put the fan on a timer? HOW LONG FOR??
just to limit constant fresh air for the plants and so humidity stays bit higher and the temps?
Maybe @VarunA might have an idea.

@Lloyd Gordon im having big humidity swings with fan on. Tested it for 24 hours on tank and humidity stays 60 and same with every 1/2 hour. So now I’ve got fan on every hour and hour off to see if that helps!

Had the setup going for about 2 weeks and the plants are seem to adjusting & settling in. Day time temps hit about 24C with radiant heat and night time temps drop to about 20C. The D Spats are getting some dew now & the pitchers are getting new pitchers also
I will be posting my plants to their separate forum threads that I made already and new ones for D Spats so I can just update you guys monthly without writing new threads every time! I’ve got hang of forum now lol apologies if I got on people’s nerves lol
