A detailed behind-the-scenes series which explains how I built the 10 Gallon Drip Wall Terrarium. Includes lots of tips, tricks, lessons learned, and secret techniques.
I discuss the tank preparation and setup overview.
You’ll learn how I created the foundation which includes “egg crate grid” structure, mopani wood, and expanding foam.
You’ll learn how I coated the walls with Hygrolon fabric, added more foundation and hardscape, and worked on more driplines.
We finally finish the foundation and hygrolon coating, finish the driplines, and do a system test
I’ll teach you how I made a PVC plumbing assembly to drain into a sump, including some great tips and ideas for your next project.
In the final video, we complete the tank by adding rocks, gravel, and plants (including Bucephalandra, the primary plant type used)
