RE: Moss terrium advice

I'd suggest looking at some of the "Vivarium" forums
for advice on terrariums. I've found mosses and lichens difficult to grow in those situations though I only keep one 150 gallon terrarium It mostly holds flowering plants .
just google that name and you'll get tons of choices!!! gary
