    Alright as far as plants go I think every plant you listed is good for a terrarium seeing as they dont need a dormancy. Just remember D. Capensis and Adelae are a pain to get rid of after planting them in a terrarium. As far as subtrate, I say stick with pure good old LFS with a layer of gravel or small rocks at the bottom. How much light you need depends on how big your terraium is, but no matter what you want at least 50-60 watts of light and remember the more light the better. I say you cram as much light as possable into that thing [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] also, you do want to cover the sides with something reflective, aluminum foil, mylar, or mirrors. Lastly, use rain, distilled, or reverse osmosis filtered water, nothing else.

    A 20 gallon terrarium will work fine for all of those plants. You might want to try a grow light like the one below.

    This will be all that you would need to grow plants in a 20 gallon terrarium. Also, 18,000K is not that good for growing cp. I would stick with around 4,000K to 6,500K as this is the spectrum carnivorous plants grow best under.

    Is the Sarracenia the same as the Heliamphora nutans? Because if you are talking about two different plants, the Sarracenia needs dormancy.
