|I suppose I could fill the tank up about an inch or so. How about the algae? *Thanks for the suggestion Sarracenia0. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img][/QUOTE]|
Algea is nothing when compaired to water mold.... Anyhow, let the water evaporate 100% befor refilling, however much you use it should be non-used up for at least 3 days no more then 7. Refill after the terrarium floor is dry for 24 hours (assumeing your air is somewhat humid) (if open) or... I think my closed one is every 3 weeks, but don't quote me on that. Oh yah, and for closed ones, let the pots get saturated in the tray then poor a little puttle on the terrarium floor, put the plants in and close, that keeps the humidity nice and consistent for a while without turning the tank into a cesspool, lol. For my vented terrarium, I treat it like it is closed, but add a puddle every 4-5 days.
There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

I am not sure if that would work having water in my tank? The pitchers on my ventricosa are touching the bottom of the tank. Having water sitting in the tank may kill the pitchers prematurely laying on the ground .
well I use the tray method for my plants, what I do is take 1 tray large enough for about 4 pots, and make sure all the plants have the same water requirement, such as i put my N. Ventricosa, and 2 N. Ventrata in it, along with one of my mexican butterworts. Then others i get a tray that fits thier pot perfectly, and this can take some time to find the right ones. Hope you have good luck,

It takes up to much room. Since I have the nep in an 8' inch pot and it takes over half of the terrarium.
It's been one of dem days

Are you talking about your N. ventricosa? *If so why don't you try growing it like a regular houseplant. *They are pretty tolerant of low humidity if adjusted to it gradually. *If you need extra humidity then a humidifier for the room will work or you can set the pot on a tray with gravel in it. *Fill the tray with water to just below the top of the gravel layer. *The water provides humidity as it evaporates and the gravel keeps the pot from setting in water all the time.
If you decide to mow it down, you can start cuttings to trade for other plants and keep a piece to start a new plant for yourself.
How come chicken fingers are bigger than buffalo wings?
My Grow List
How long do I have to give it to adjust outside the terrarium? A week, 2 weeks, a Month? If it starts to die I will trade the cuttings. Thanks for that idea BCK.
