As a young kid preparing for my school’s science fair, my Dad and I created terrariums to demonstrate rain. We arranged some dirt, plants, moss, and rocks in an old fish tank, dug a little “pond” in the middle, and covered the tank with clear plexiglass. After several hours, the water from the pond would evaporate, form condensation, and finally, droplets of water on the inside surface of the plexiglass that would slowly drop like rain back into the tiny microclimate.
When selecting your plants I recommend you make your Terrarium Workshops, or at least your first Terrarium, with only one particular type of carnivorous plant. The different species of plants have varying needs and caring properly for one type can kill another type.
Know that the bigger the lizard is the harder it becomes to keep them as pets. These types of animals really require large environments. Handling issues and many other factors can be involved with these kinds of animals.
If you are looking for a Terrarium workshop carnivorous plant that is easier to care for and doesn’t have to go through a dormancy period you might want to consider getting the Cape Sundew. This is a tropical plant that has the same trap door like action as the fly trap. Its motion is however, much slower. It takes about fifteen minutes for the trap to fully close. And although it is not as dramatic as the Venus fly trap it is much easier to care for.
Many types of this tender, tropical annual herb exist, but most varieties of Basil grow quickly and easily in warm climate with soil that needs fertilizing.
Feed your pet after a few hours. By this time they will be somewhat acclimated to their surroundings. Don’t worry if they don’t eat right away. It may take a day or two to become adapted and comfortable.
When it comes to feeding them, fresh fruits and vegetables are advised. Kales, turnips, clovers, carrots, peas, melons, apples, apricots, bananas, peaches, kiwis, figs, tomatoes, and dates can be given. Nonetheless, you may also feed them with natural bran cereals and whole grain breads. It is also encouraged to give them vitamin and mineral supplements to keep them in top shape. On the other hand, meat products are discouraged as iguanas are generally herbivores.
