It is with sadness that I say that at week 16 my “Carnivorous Creation” was no more.
On the left is the sad, dried out version of plant death that became of my terrarium. At a glance, I saw a glimmer of hope through the appearance of green, but upon closer observation I had found a new edition of terrarium mold.
