Place any decorative sculptures or wood in the tank before adding compost or plants to help you visualize the look you wish to achieve.
Once the compost is correctly moistened, add it around your sculptures to hold them firmly in place, unusual shaped pieces may need additional wire supports hidden under the compost.
Firm the compost into place, a change in levels can be more interesting than a completely flat layer.
Foliage and smaller plants should be used for foreground, background, and ground cover.
Higher, feature plants can be used to create a focal point within the AIR or as a background. The size they will grow to should be considered.
Allow room for growth and access to clean the inside of the globe.
If you are planting epiphytic species, make sure they receive additional sprays of Humidimist to help them adjust and root in their surroundings.
Epiphytic plants, such as Orchids, also require additional weekly feeding with a suitable fertilizer.
Carnivorous plants can grow very well in the AIR. As with all species, we recommend you research your intended choices to insure their suitability. You must also consider that fertilizers cannot be used and that the plants require insects as food for their source nitrogen.
Please research individual plant requirements.
