    Bored sunday evening pics

    I just got this little terrarium done tonight for my cousin who's 11 and said she wants a Venus Flytrap. I'm gonna grow it for a while until the moss settles and give it to her for her birthday in Feb. I figured in a small enclosed space if she forgets to ever water it the condensation/evaporation should keep it hydrated.





    The soil is 50/50 Shultz APS and Shredded LFS with live sphagnum ontop. The lowest 2" is pure APS to absorb excess water. I'm out of Hydroton otherwise I'd have used that.

    Here's a Lowes Nep, I think most people say they turn out to be N. ventricosa, I've never had that one before despite all the other rarer Nep species I've owned. LOL



    I made a vow not to buy anymore "monster" sized Neps but right off I broke that because I like the giant raff so here's my BE 99


    The following are seed grown babies I got from an awesome TF member. Thanks again man - lemme know if you want any of my trimmings in spring.

    N. albomarginata red I've wanted this one since my first Nep collection and he sent me two !




    N. maxima



    Thanks for looking

    I love the giant wings on the Raff, but that nep is just too big for my growspace. Yours looks very good, as does everything else!

    Man if any of my relatives had ever given me a little flytrap terrarium like that I would have just done flips.

    Awesome!

    Thanks! I checked her bedroom windowsills sun exposure (southern) and it felt pretty cold right by the window so hopefully it will give the plant a sense of seasons with the light and temp variations and survive. In summer she can set it out on the patio with the lid off to catch food.

    if any of my relatives had ever given me a little flytrap terrarium like that I would have just done flips
    I'm just following the tradition. One of my uncles was a plant nut with a wall full of fluorescent lights and being a kid looking at all his exotics (and his giant hermit crab) is what got me into plants and terrariums. He gave my first Nep when I told him I was thinking of making my old fish tank into a terrarium.
