Place any decorative sculptures or wood in the tank before adding compost or plants to help you visualize the look you wish to achieve.
Choose the sculptures and other decorations according to your animal’s nature and needs. Be mindful of the space between the sculpture and the lighting.
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 EARTH or as background. The size they will grow to should be considered.
Allow room for growth and access to clean the inside of the unit.
Please research individual plant requirements.
