Selva Terrarium | Forest Floor Terrariums
Forest Floor Terrariums use refined design strategies and new planting methods to create beautiful terrarium habitats for live plants and animals such as dart frogs, lizards and arboreal tarantulas. The Forest Floor Terrarium kit includes a rigid false bottom plates in combination with planter pots and a few other components. This modular system simplifies display terrarium design, set up and maintenance.
Forest Floor Terrarium Design
This list summarizes Forest Floor Terrarium design features:
- Short-statured plants grow in the terrarium foreground.
- Taller background plants and terrarium decorations (such as driftwood stumps) add vertical dimension.
- Natural forest leaf litter covers the planting accessories to create a natural scene.
- Terrarium animals complete the display.
While the most popular methods for developing terrarium/vivarium plantings use built-up 3-dimensional backgrounds structures, Forest Floor Terrariums instead use robust plant growth and movable features such as driftwood stumps to fill the vertical space. This kind of configuration creates an appealing and authentic recreation of a wild forest floor habitat
Forest Floor Terrarium Set Up
Forest Floor Terrariums use most of the same supplies and equipment already popular for planted terrarium/vivarium displays. Terrarium plants grow very well in bright, diffuse light from fluorescent or LED fixtures. Certain kinds of terrarium reptiles also require UVB lamps and heat lamps for basking. With proper plant and livestock selection you can install a mister system for high humidity, or use a screen enclosure top for drier conditions. The Forest Floor Terrarium kit is manufactured by Selva Terrarium and available in sizes to match several different commercial glass terrarium models.
Selva Terrarium is a Wisconsin, USA based business that developed the Forest Floor Terrarium concept and manufactures the planting kits. Each Selva Terrarium | Forest Floor Terrarium Kit (above) includes the sturdy false bottom plate (A), planter pots (B), fitted screen (C), additional accessories and a detailed instruction sheet. The Forest Floor false bottom plate is fitted to match popular commercial terrarium (such as Exo Terra®) and aquarium (such as AqueonTM) models. Selva Terrarium also offers rooting media to fill the planter pots, natural forest leaf litter and detailed technical support.
