A detailed behind-the-scenes series which explains how I built the “Buce Ravine” Terrarium. Includes lots of tips, tricks, and techniques.
Foundation, Rocks, and Roots. As the series begins, I show you how I created the foundation, planned and constructed the Dragon Stone hardscape, embedded everything into the tank, and started attaching the spider wood roots.
Substrate and tree stump. In this next part of the series, I show you the various substrates used and how they were added. Then you will learn the secrets of how I created the tree stump near the top, and tips for making things look more natural.
Planting, and further details. Finally, I add the plants, including Lemmaphyllum microphyllum, Bucephalandra, Octoblepharum moss, and “Buce Moss” (which is actually a leafy liverwort, not a moss).
How to Grow Buce Emersed (Like a Boss!)
Where to buy Bucephalandra
For hobbyists in the USA, I use and highly recommend Buceplant.com.
They carry a huge selection of Bucephalandra, as well as tons of other amphibious and aquatic plants which can be grown emersed for terraria and wabi kusa.
