    Default 73 gallon Orchidarium Build Help and advise welcome :)

    This will be turned into a Orchidarium . I bought it a while back thinking of making a Fresh water planted tank. Now I am just going to make it into a terrarium. I may put dart frogs but I am up on the fence about this

    Here is my tank


    Here is some inspirations for a water feature



    I am researching and composing a list of orchids to put in here. I would love to add other plants but not sure which ones. Any suggestions welcome.

    Try some Broms as well, Cryptanthus (these are tiny little things-earth stars) would look AWESOME in the front at the bottom, and up in any logs or branches up higher Same with tillandsias!

    I've never grown orchids like that, so I look forward to hearing what you do and seeing the photos too!

    cheers,
