Instructions for building and caring for your sporophyte plant.

Type of terrariums

Empty two liter bottles, glass encased bowls, large brandy glass with a cover, store bought plastic terrarium

When to plant

When you see several roots and leaves, transfer to the terrarium at this time. Move the whole plant and try not to plant a lot of the agar.

Types of soil

Potting soil works the best or, ask at the local nursery for the type of soil for growing ferns.

Light and Temperature

Use the same conditions as for growing the gametophyte, however, cooler temperatures will work but the plant will grow slower.

# of plants to transfer

That is up to you and your design, try moving 3-4 plants. You may also want to make another terrarium.
