First of all the greenhouse will have to have a hard base to stop anything burrowing out. You can do this by either laying slabs or by putting down fine galvanised mesh underneath whatever substrate you choose to use.
If you don't want to use turf I would recommend top soil and moss as a substrate, you can get a plant from your local garden centre called "none of your business" that is a very good hardy ground covering fern / moss.

The plant "mind your own business" is from the Genus Soleirolia.
Here's a link: http://davesgarden.com/pf/go/54039/
The Miscanthus grasses are tall and spectacular, and a Fatsia japonica, a tropical looking large leaf plant with huge glossy palmate leaves, is perfect for a shady "jungle" effect.

Finally got round to getting my greenhouse up. I still have to put in some big plants for the Hyla. I have stocked the pond with daphnia and elodea and a few other plants to get the cycle going and hope to get some new occupants soon. I am going to introduce my Bombina veriagata next week.

it looks good, you could try a water lily in the pond area... you could also try this plant called russian vine, it grows really quickly for the summer and then dies back for the winter...

Thanks for the suggestions William, the pond is fairly shallow so really rules out water liilies. I have passion flower in there which is very nice and should do well in the greenhouse. It too grows quite quickly.

I will post more pictures as it matures.

I keep and breed H. arborea in a greenhouse, i like New Zealand Flax, Vitis vinifera and Ficus benjamina (eurasian fig). There is also a colony of midwife toads at north anston nr, sheffield. They have persisted there for many years pretty much undisturbed. If that is of any interest to any of you.

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal

  • Elder_Axolotl:
    @Albi_the_axolotlt I would definitely make a thread about this, but before you panic try putting you axolotl in a tub where the water only goes about an inch above it, and then cool the water down SLOWLY, like a couple ice cubes at a time, to about 50 Deg F. sometimes this helps them pass gas, or even have a bowel movement. Just make sure the Temps from your current enclosure and the tub are within 4 degrees of each other and not higher than 65 Deg F. so you dont Temp shock your baby.

    well I don't know how to make a thread and I am very thankful for your help but the real reason I am worried about is that it goes away and comes back constantly like its gets better today then tomorrow morning she is at the top of the tank floating on her side all bubbled up? I do put her in a container with just enough water to cover her back and it helped but it gets annoying and scary when it's consantly happening and I am worried I am doing something horrible wrong.
