The Christmas gift for my ants has arrived, donated by my boyfriend.
It should be ready in time (expected time to dry is 2-3 days, at least for the outworld).
The contents of the package: a vertical farm and an outworld.
This is not corn.
It's aquarium pebbles as a drainage/water reservoir layer.
It looks a bit... awkward.
The vertical farm completed, still needs to dry.
The upper (nesting) layer consists of desert substrate (sand, clay, pebbles) and yellow desert sand.
This is the outworld bottom substrate made of red sand-clay mix and yellow desert sand.
It should turn out a lot brighter when it's dry.
The fully outworld, still wet.
For decoration I used some shells, a decorative resin tree we had still lying around and some old stone turtles.
The water tubes will be covered with a piece of brown cardboard, maybe I'll try to glue some sand onto it so it doesn't stand out as much.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!
