    ok i got my terrarium today,and all my sundews and set them up.i remember rampuppy saying to put wax paper over the top to create moisture inside so the sundews would get droplets.in a house where would be a good place to put this at??? and any more info would be of major help.and i must say that the setup was a breeze thanks to phil and co [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hi CPS

    I think you'd be better off using some type of plastic wrap (like Seran or Glad) because it will "stick" better to the top. Wax paper will just blowor slide off. But don't forget to leave a little space open for air...air circulation will help ward off molds and fungus. Personally, I get a sheet of glass cut for my terrariums. Its easy to take on and off. I have a round terrarium also and I got a round piece of glass cut. But plastic wrap will work too. And it won't cut you (as I look at the cut on my hand....) lol

    What sundews did you get? [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    A small piece of plexiglass would also work.

    Careful about giving it too much sun as temperatures can get very high very fast in a small terrarium.
