Mystery bag of plants otw home!!!!

Ok lets see… 

Bottom right is a Selaginella (kraussiana?)

Bottom left is a Hedra helix (‘Teardrop’ maybe)

Top left is Portulacaria afra

Top is Senecio radicans

and if there’s something in the top right I can’t see it clearly enough for an ID.

Good job!!!!

I have all the tags, but didn’t want to list them all :)

The sagina subulata reads that it doesn’t do well in terrariums so it’s getting planted outside.

The others I have planted in the terrarium and have read they are frog safe, lowered the water line a bit hoping to reduce the risk of drowning.

The succulents are hanging from my cabinets right now, haven’t decided exactly what I want to do! Maybe a crochet plant hanger, not sure!!

I think the biggest issue with the Selaginella would be air flow. The two succulents… maybe start cuttings of them in/out of the tank so that if the main plant doesn’t make it you’ll still have the cuttings, or plant the cuttings in the tank and leave the main plant out.

I’ve been looking at frog safe plants, any cool terrarium plants I should be aware of when scouring my local plant shops? Not sure if any of you really do any terrarium stuff, just has to be safe for my whites tree frogs. Any suggestions on who might have cool ideas on filling this in with plants? I should be going within the next couple days :) thanks guys

How humid is it going to be in there? Some Anubias barteri could be a nice leafy plant that would do well on the driftwood, as a sort of smaller but also sturdier peace lily alternative. Some bromeliads could be nice, especially some smaller Neoregelia cultivars - these are really popular in dart frog tanks and can add some nice colour too, something like N. ‘Fireball’. bromeliace might know other varieties that could work.

I would also check out Dendroboard’s Plant Subforum too, especially if it’s going to be a very humid tank. They also often work with smaller tanks for some species so you’ll find suggestions for small plants that will do well there too.

goldfarts asked: Listening to any new music that you've really enjoyed lately?

I have to admit I’ve been in a little bit of a music slump recently.

I listened to artpop and was not impressed. (Does anyone else want to follow up the word “Fashion” with “put on your red shoes and dance”? It’s especially noticeable in the live version featuring RuPaul that’s a little slower than the album version). Speaking of RuPaul - Glamazon, Cover Girl and The Beginning are all really fun songs. 

I’ve been listening to some music from musicals a bit. There’s a guy on YouTube Nick Pitera who does some amazing covers. I’d re-blogged his one man Les Mis sometime last year but only just found his Phantom. His female roles are sometimes a little scratchy but sometimes they’re exactly where they need to be. I’m almost more impressed when he sings two male parts together and keeps the roles sounding distinct.

A little bit ago I’d been listening to a fair bit of The Presets. Some of they’re stuff goes to far into weird for my tastes but a lot of it is great - If I Know You, This Boy’s in Love, Aeons and a fair bit off their third CD are also very good. Haven’t listened recently, may have over done it when I found them though.

Anonymous asked: did you have a good day? :) What was good about it? Was there anyone who helped make it better?

I had a great day! I feel like I’m really getting a handle on my new job, and I think everyone there’s been so great so far. I guess right now it’s hard to think about too much other than that but it’s going well and the weather’s great so I can’t complain. And thanks for the ask :D you just helped make my day better too.

First day at the new job today, I think it went well, though I’m going to be in training for about another two weeks. There’s a lot I need to learn though so that’s probably for the best.

Paphiopedilum Iantha Stage ‘Green Destiny’ (rothschildianum x sukhakulii)

Either parent alone can be spectacular but the combination of size and intense color that  can be achieved with this hybrid is extraordinary. Our ‘Green Destiny’ clone is a great example of this with its 20 cm natural spread.
