    dammit....see...I always go for "SHOW" and wow factor and waste money. Spent 24$ canadian in total for them both. Well......its done ...nothing much to do now. The stuff was only 9$...shipping was 10$+. .But I went ahead and got it. Becos I know the same ones in local pj's petstore are more expensive if they even have them. darn...they sell a small sheet of moss for 9$ which is ridiculous.

    But just for the aesthetic factor though? I think a fogger makes the scene really good. Kinda like this::

    someguy's amazing vivarium from google images.



    I think it looks great. But does the excess humidity ROT VFT's

    If yes..I guess I'll stay away and get it when I get a better setup.

    My main reason is I am planning on getting some rotondofolia and few pygmy sundews later. So they would love the humidity. capensis in my opinion is one of the ugly sundews ...but meh...as long as it is small...I'll let it be

    Lol, you paid for for shipping that the product?

    None of those plants need high humidity but they all need high light.

    take a look at the plants in there...all very tropical. VFTs are temperate plants...big difference.

    yeah...well I also needed a temperature meter since after getting the new lamp...the sphagnum tips are burning even though tis all growing. So I spray themevery day. Its useful to have a small thermometer for the terrarium.

    I just got the humidity thingy with it considering its only 2-3$ more. In either case shipping was 10$ since its coming from US.

    darn...I wonder why I can't find this stuff in canada. Everything has to be in the US

    I know what u mean...as i was saying though its not for right now ...but I was planning a model of a new terrarium with CP's at a higher level....some sundews near the bottom and some airplants all on drift wood and so on.

    Wouldn't this be useful in that case?? But I do understand what u mean....I did hear that with excess water + high heat...VFT's ROT...which I need to avoid...so that scraps the fogger for now.
