The forest terrarium

Forestterrarium is the term given to semi-damp or semi-dry terraria. This name should not only call to mind central European forests, since this type of terrarium can range climatically between dry and rainforest terraria. The decoration, temperature and dampness depend heavily on the species being kept. The substrate is kept more or less damp and, if necessary, a drainage layer of expanded clay or cork is used. The plants provide the inhabitants with hiding places and visual cover, but are also used for climbing and as territory markers. The light requirement is less than in dry terraria. The need for dampness is met by using small or large misters. The inhabitants of forest terraria are reptiles and arachnids, but sometimes amphibians too.
