How We Protect Your Plants For Transit
All plants are dug and immediately taken to our warehouse and tera-sorb moisture retention gel is applied to the roots and then wrapped in plastic to retain superior moisture for transit. They are placed in corogated cardboard shipping boxes for protection when shipped
Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.
These living ecosystems are entirely self-sustaining when properly designed and executed. Terrarium builders and hobbyists choose themed scenes with specific plants in mind such as orchids and bryophytes for tropical terrariums or cacti and succulents for desert landscapes. Terrarium wood provides these exotic landscapes with an organic matter upon which plants can grow and thrive. They are also visually appealing when placed asymmetrically in a desert landscape or horizontally in a rainforest scene. Bryophytes and orchids flourished on driftwood and dried cactus wood as well as firewood. These pieces of carefully placed timber are also home to sphagnum and other mosses that contribute to the terrarium's lush interior. Orchids and bryophytes are sustained by light, porous wood draped with rich moss and other decaying materials that provide sustenance. Over time, the wood itself will slowly deteriorate and provide nutrients to tropical terrarium life. For desert landscapes, sandblasted wood's smooth surface invites intriguing juxtapositions with blooming cacti and rough sand. A particularly impressive piece of smooth, gnarled wood can provides a focal point during non-blossoming seasons. If the sandblasted wood is not an option, smooth driftwood can also make a similar impression.
Other Terrarium Wood landscapes include pond-like ecosystems that feature strong, dark wood branches with rugged and rough textures.
Soft mosses and ferns complement these textures. Some terrariums even include a cycling water feature. Landscapes such as these require water-resistant wood pieces like cedar or redwood. When choosing wood for your terrarium, ensure that the wood has been thoroughly cleaned and is contamination- and parasite-free. The wood you want becomes an anchor to the ecosystem that you create. A poorly chosen piece of wood can spell the end for a terrarium. To prevent this kind of demise, choose nurseries and other garden centers as a source of timber. The driftwood, sandblasted wood and firewood found in these locations are terrarium-safe.
Reptile Owners favor terrarium Wood.
Terrarium Wood encourages plant growth.
Loved by many reptiles
Adding wood gives a natural visual appeal to a habitat. It also offers reptiles (such as snakes and lizards) a place to crawl. Terrarium Wood will come in a variety of sizes and shapes.
