VIRGINIA?!? Where??!!! I live in Virginia. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] And it is a great climate for most CPs. And I'm always trying to find CP people here...so far nada. Where are you?
Oh...Welcome to the forums! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
If the plant you say "looks like a tree" is a sundew, it is probably d. adelae which grows upright on a stem and is often found in those little potted domes at Lowes and the like.
I'm still not to sure about what plants you have, but you can keep your VFTs and American pitcher plants outside year 'round (full sun). Temps here are fine for that. I have a couple of microbogs outside for the sarras.
As for a terrarium, while some people do grow them in soil, I personally have had better success with plants left in the pots inside tanks...mostly the ones that need higher humidity. You will also need to have some air circulation in your tank to prevent mold and fungus. That just means don't completely seal your tank. I have 4 tanks indoors, plus a couple of open shelves of plants and then the CPs outdoors. Oh yeah...and a "nursery" in the basement.

It kind of depends on the plants you have as to which will like full sun and which ones wouldn't.
Any way you could take a pic of your plants as a group so we could maybe identify them for you?
Welcome back to the world of CPs...do I see the signs of a possible addiciton forming?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
