Hat I'm new and still lerning but can you build an actual Garden in a formicarium out world with real plants and everything or is this a bad idea? I'm just wondering though it was a cool idea :D

You can, but the ants may use the out world as the nest area because of the soils etc.

I was thinking more of like a marshy one with honeysuckle and sum other local plans that at produce high amounts of nectar but like the ground too moist for the ants to nest in and then having a second out world that's artificial and more deserty feeling where I'll give them there insects would that work? Or no?

I like the idea of the out worlds being different areas like desert, marsh etc. You could try and post what happens
