    A trip to the farm settled the problem. Very happy with my setup now, just as I had envisioned during planning phase.
    Next challenge is to maintain the health and quality of the plants.

    Re: My 2ft Vivarium

    Just sharing my all time favourite vivarium build video.
    The guy has mad skills and my setup is still nowhere near his. Some call him the Amano of vivariums.
    If only I had the space for a 4ft tank, I might do something like this.
    Cheers and enjoy the video.

    Update again on my tank, plants are starting to flourish although I still prefer the looks on the original Dec 2016 picture.
    One thing I like though are the roots from the money plants growing on the branch growing downwards, giving it a jungle feel.

    How did you manage to attach the pothos to the branches and the wall?

    For the branches I use cable tie to attach them and let the new roots cling onto the branch. Same as for the corkbark but I use toothpicks instead.

    Heres a pic of the pothos on the branch with cable ties.
    I like how the roots have started to grow downwards giving it a true jungle feel.

    Yes the only problem that I faced is that one end of the pothos must be submerged in water or else the whole vine will dry out. I have tried tying those mini test tubes in test kits filled with water and sticking those shorter vines into it but they only lasted for a couple months before turning yellow.

    When I cut vines to Repot sometimes they do dry up. Not all of them will root in wet soil. What a strange plant

    I'm not an expert on plants but I watched on youtube that they usually place the pothos cuttings in water for a couple days before repotting into soil.

    Damp moss on the branches will dry out too quickly as I'm running 4x24W T5HO without any misting system. I manually mist the tank once a day.

    I keep them in Super wet soil coz water roots are said to be fragile and break easily but yes they root fast in water
