    Yes! No casualties. New roots. But no flowers. I know you said they are slow growers. Who knows maybe my conditions aren't going to even promote flowering. I hope not tho. Would love to see colors.

    Do you know what conditions need to be met in order to promote flowering?

    Each orchid will be different. Generally a change in the amount of light in a day they receive or a colder period

    This tank is ready for some thumbs. I'm grabbing some off @erikm this weekend.

    4 months worth of growth.

    Met @erikm today for the first time. Great guy! Hooked me up with 4 Varaderos for my in-wall vivarium. I was very excited to finally add some frogs to this tank. I took some footage and made a short video on the frog's first hours in their new home. Thanks again, @erikm.

    Great vid man! Awesome to meet you as well. Glad you are already enjoying them. Very cool that they're already munching down on some flies right after you introduced them!

    Oh yeah, some of the hanging pods have fell from their spots from decay. They don't last that long. Only 4 months in.

    Yes I am overdue for an update.

    I will snap some pics tonite. The finishing trim pieces are on around the tank. Covers for lights and equipment are built. 2 more frogs added and doing well.
