Hi all,

Another terrarium creation from me. This time round the Muji acrylic container is smaller but design is sleek, its a drawer style with a hole for ventilation.

Moss comes from tree bark, the rest are golden nana and selaginella species.

Comments are welcome! :flowers:/>

Its mostly Selaginella species, a cousin of fern. Plus anubias nana plant, an aquatic plant.

Wow this is really beautiful!!! Your ferns look really happy g:D It is like a little box of forest floor.

Just wondering -- do you add drainage holes at the bottom of the box?

Wow. Really nice.

Got a spare aquarium at home with a low wattage aquarium light after upgrading to a bigger aquarium. Thinking of converting it into a terrarium. Where did you get the moss and the tiny ferns btw? The tiny ferns probably can get from nursery and transplant. But I hardly see nurseries sell moss.

I collected the moss from various places, from damp and humid areas. Best during rainy season where it will grow in abundance.
