  What leaf littler to use??
Posted by: Philsuma - 05-16-2021, 04:01 PM - Forum: Plants - Bromeliads, Aroids, Moss, Soil, Pests - No Replies

Southern Live Oak - small leaves

Magnolia - bigger leaves, so you need less of em.

Sea Grape - large circular and flat. It has it's uses. 

You can use any single leaf ya want...well, some may be aromatic or unsuitable in that regard. The rate that all other leaves will disintegrate is so fast, that it doesn't make sense to even use the effort to collect them, IMO. Leaf little composting is ok for microfauna and soil but you def want some longer laster stuff, hence the live oak and magnolia.

I was wondering if there were any breeders that work with this species.  I’m not looking for any specific color but bright colors are preferred. Im looking to get 3-4 of these frogs.

  Pests in the house caused by Frog Vivariums
Posted by: Philsuma - 12-23-2020, 02:52 PM - Forum: Plants - Bromeliads, Aroids, Moss, Soil, Pests - Replies (1)

By Kimmich - Rarely I see an article so important that I copy it here. This is one.

There are a few different things people mean when they talk about the inevitability of insects and vivs:

1) Fruit flies will escape your cultures and viv. I don't mind seeing a lone wingless fruitfly crawling across the coffee table from time to time - but for some people that is an unacceptable infestation.

2) Moist vivariums will sustain fungus gnats. Depending on your ambient humidity outside the viv, however, you may never see escapees - or you may find them near your sink drains.

2) Fruit fly cultures will attract mites. These are usually harmless species and even commercially-produced cultures have them. Depending on the observer, a normal population of grain mites in a FF culture may be unnoticed or perceived as a chronic infestation. In both cases the FF cultures are actually fine and the mites are not a problem - but people tend to be bug-phobic especially in their homes.

3) Insect introductions and boom/bust population cycles will happen to all vivs. People tend to overreact to these when they occur even though, in most cases, an infestation will disappear on its own without any intervention.

4) A house without a viv will certainly have fewer insects than a house with a viv, all things being equal. For some people, one escaped fruitfly or isopod is too many - those people, or their housemates, are likely the ones posting about insects problems with having vivs.

5) There will be spiders. Anytime there are flies - there will be spiders

  Monstera Dubia anyone?
Posted by: chano - 11-15-2020, 11:57 PM - Forum: Everything else for Sale or Trade - Replies (5)

Gauging interest.  I run a nursery in Pa, we specialize in rare foliage.  I am just returning to this hobby after quite some time away and I though I would come by and see if there is any interest in the plants we have.  We curnently have roughly 50+varieties of Philodendron, 60+ varieties of Hoya, 19 varieties of Monstera, 40+ varieties of begonia, and various other plants from multiple families. 

Monstera Dubia is one of our more popular and rare of the monstera species but well suited for a viv.  It is a shingler and the juvenile foliage has a silvery color around the veins.

$65.00 plus shipping(shipping is Usps priority starting at $7.95+$5.00 for winter shipping materials aka. Insulated box, heat pack, etc where applicable.)
