Building a Carnivorous Bog Terrarium
One of the first projects conceived in the greenhouse was the construction of a carnivorous bog terrarium. Several students worked diligently to research soil condition, terrarium design, plant species, and watering needs related to growing plants (mainly carnivorous plants) in a bog habitat. The students designed the terrarium, amended the soil, helped order the plants, and then built the bog habitat over the course of several months.
Please enjoy a selection of pictures from the construction phase and the finished bog terrarium. Many thanks to David Umanskiy and Sam Bogdanov.
