Terrarium: Moss is getting brown

3 years ago

Hi All

I made my first terrarium last December following all the recommendations I found on internet (layer of gravel, active carbon, earth, plants and springtails). I keep the moisture level as advised (condensation must form only in the evening and early morning, not in the afternoon). I found however that the moss is getting brown as you see from the latest photos (7-10). I touched the moss and is definitely moist it is not getting dry. I keep the terrarium next to a window but not under direct sunlight, so I think the level of light is again as recommended.

On another topic, I noticed a few centipedes, (photo number 8) will they eat the springtails?

Thank you all in advance for your answers.
