there is a chameleon hiding in there, can you find it?

 

 

Nope, I looked and searched many times and I couldn't see it.  Perhaps I'm getting old fella already and need glasses lol

 

Give me a hint, please :biggrin:

All the equipment is hidden away in the cabinet underneath the terrarium.

Best wishes:)

Very very nice ! Your set-up is clean, beautiful and stunning. :)

What are your growing conditions ? Is it more lowland or highland ? Because I see you have a N. glabrata and I would know how you grow it. :)

Thank you both for the nice comments :)

Hi Kiwano, I'd probably say it's an intermediate terrarium as the temperatures do tend to hover between highland and lowland conditions but it does have a cable heater fitted to keep it stable during the winter. The N glabrata seems to really enjoy these conditions and has tripled in size as it was tiny when I got it and is one of my favourites. The humidity runs at about 95% with the lights running for 14 hours a day and the misters coming on once an hour for 10 seconds during the day but I purposely made the terrarium totally automated as I'm a bit slack sometimes when it comes to watering and stuff :)

Best wishes Matwag

Love the tank, looks very natural! Like that you have random ferns, mosses and mushrooms popping up - that must be interesting to observe and make it feel even more natural.
