Today I took some pictures of my "Bottle-terrariums" All the little plants, twigs and pieces of bark are collected in the local woods. There are only two things as an addition to the "forest things". It's a little colony of springtails to keep the soil in good condition and a kind of "barrier" between the soil and the false bottom. I'm also breeding some little white isopods (Trichorhina tomentosa) to add them in the future as the third helping hand into these Terrariums. They work like hand in glove with the springtails to keep the whole little ecosphere alive and thriving.
I’ve been feeling so lost today. Life feels so stagnant yet the thought of change is terrifying. I don’t know why I’m like this.
Days like these I find my peace sitting here. Observing the terrariums help me feel like I’m not so small in this giant world. Soaking up the sun rays reminds me I’m here and I’m alive despite everything I’ve been through.
Hello again! Last night I made some terrariums and this morning woke up to find *life*. I truly don’t mind these little guys hanging around as the jar is airtight, but I don’t want them to kill my ecosystem. What are they? And are they harmful?
Hurray my new Isopods arrived today ! And they seem pretty happy about their new home. At first, they were pretty active and exploring. Now they all crawled under the nice rotten wood. They are some Armadillidium depressum.
