And here I thought no one grew Cryptocoryne in terrariums!
They make a great addition, with nice and unique flowers.
About the heating, the lightig keeps the terrarium nice and warm during the day, and you can incorporate an underground heatnig cable in the soil, connected to a temperature sensor.

Thanks to all that responded. I don't have a terrarium like RSS, just one gallon jars. I have two orchids on cork bark in my 62F home: Bulbophyllum taiwanese and Chiloschista segawai. Both are growing, the Bulbo better than the Chilo. I have been fertilizing weekly with Dyno-Gro Bloom for a month now. The plants get soaked in tepid water each morning. Fertilizer on Saturday. 1/4 tsp per gallon. Both cork slabs are in a North facing window.

I have about 2" of water in the jar and a few Cryptocoryne parva planted in the substrate. I had these at work and placed them on an electrical transformer to give them 80F all winter under a 55W PC. I have other emersed Crypts in similar jars. I only kept one jar at home at 62F containing C. parva, Sagittaria subulata, and Hairgrass. Fully filled with water and a few Endler Guppies. Plants have been growing slowly at home. The Buce's have grown a few new leaves since fall.
