Q & A: Mold on Terrarium Walls

Photo from forums.gardenweb.com

Here is a question I answered on the terrarium forum of gardenweb.com.

Q: Have a terrarium with a fern, would be about 2 months old & have noticed spots of mould on the glass.  Has anyone else had this problem?  The walls are covered in condensation even though I air it out at least once a week.
A: If the opening of your terrarium is narrow you may need to let it air out more frequently than once a week. I also see that you have a layer of sphagnum moss over the soil - this may contribute to trapping more moisture in the terrarium than is desirable. I would suggest removing it.

  2. Scarlet Macaw is at the top of the list of the ten most beautiful birds according to its distinct color combination on the body. Belonging to the category of parrots, the bird lives mainly in the moist evergreen forests of South America. Little birds appear to have been observed in the provinces other than the Coiba Islands.

    The Scarlet Macaw is a large, uniquely colored body with a combination of red, yellow, and blue. Besides, it is considered the smartest bird around the world, which can make sounds like real people. Finally, a bird can travel an average of about 90 cm in length at speeds above 35 mph. Another interesting fact is that the life expectancy of a bird is an impressive figure of 75 per year.
