    Your Cape Sundew seems to be really taking off. I can remember the first pictures you took and what a difference now!

    By the way, are those 10 gallons?
    Yup, my cape 'dew and the U. livida, and the baby 'dews, and the rescued vft...

    Yes, those are 10 gallons.

    chloroplast, I was a bit worried that it was too cool for some plants, but you reassurred me. When the heating comes on in my house, it goes up to 74*-75*, and the humidity seems to stay at around 40%, but when some more plants are introduced into the terrarium, they should help to raise it a bit.

    D.capensis and D.adelae grow like a WEED when in cooler conditions(around 70-74 degrees). As you put more plants into the terrarium,the humidity should rise to around 50%-60%.

    Ok, thanks for all the info. After I added my U. gibba in its glass bowl, the temp & humidity have gone up a bit.

    Here's a pic of my D. capensis now:



    (It doesn't grow on that windowsill, I just put it there to get some light into the pic.)

    And one of its very dewy leaves:

    Thanks guys. I'm hoping that this guy will flower again soon, and then I can collect some seeds and grow some more.
