Iguanas originally came from Mexico, South America, and Central America; although Hawaii, California, and Florida can also be considered as iguana habitats. These cold-blooded animals live in rainforests as well as dry, coastal regions. Today, however, iguanas can be found almost anywhere in the world. People have started to raise and breed iguanas for food. Others take care of them as pets.
Oh, I forgot to tell you that I have two terrariums with the males and females separated. The terrariums are together on my dining room window sill. In each terrarium there is a small wood log that leans up against the corner of the glass opposite the other terrarium. Zyrtek and Gigi have developed an afternoon romance where they will sit on the top of the log staring at each other. At time Zytek will do his romantic thing and show his pink dewap (a flap that protrudes from his throat.) The funny thing is that when they hear me walk into the room or look into their cages, Gigi will act like I caught her doing something wrong and turn away from Zyrtek. It’s hilarious. Even when I come home and they hear me walk in I can see them move or go hide in the leaves. Silly lizards, but yet they’re smart.
If you do not have one of these glass cookie jars here are some guidelines for choosing an alternate container. Choose a large container that is glass or plastic (preferably clear plastic if the project is for younger children) and insure it has a very large mouth opening so little hands can reach easily into it. Then finally, choose something with an easily removable lid. This will allow you to cover it for a closed system but also to remove it if it is over watered.
You need to make sure that all objects in the Terrarium Singapore are “soft,” with no sharp edges. Tarantulas are great climbers, and if they fall on anything sharp, they can die.
I never thought about Terrarium workshop again until, as a grown up, I rediscovered them while shopping in my favorite garden center. There were all sorts of tiny plants. Some were miniature trees and some had tropical flair. Others had feathery fern-like foliage held daintily above arching stems.
You should start out by buying a mature plant that is either in the process of blooming or has already bloomed once. That way you guarantee a basic degree of success and should not have an orchid which never blooms. It is your efforts at orchid care which will be rewarded with its next period of flower production.
If you can follow those three simple bits of advice, you’ll radically improve the likelihood of owning a glass plant terrarium filled with gorgeous, thriving flowers and plants that will make every day into a heavenly replica of spring.
