    Utopia in a glass-- the most exquisite CP terrarium of all time? [warning: pic heavy]

    Is this quite possibly the most exquisite CP terrarium you've ever feasted your eyes on?

    Umm.. not quite.

    However, it is the most crowded CP terrarium I have ever seen. The only thing you need now is a utric.

    The small drosera in the terrarium intrigue me. What species are they (aside from the obvious capensis).

    Yes, there are 25 different species in the terrarium alone. Let's see if you can spot them all.

    What sort of lighting is this under and for how long have you been growing it there?

    Congrats.

    Just a little advice. You may want to think about moving the VFTs out and growing them in a more temperate environment long term. They will eventually need dormancy or they will exhaust themselves and die. They look small so they should be fine growing them there in the winter. You can place them outside come spring. The VFTs that is.

    Thanks brother, but this terrarium has been growing as-is for the past 5 years. Apparently something's working

    I actually don't see any pings in there either.
    Super cool though. I've REALLY been wanting to do something like this too. I've been collecting all types of different punch bowls and carafes.
