    Nice terrarium--the plants look pretty healthy.

    I grow them on a grow rack. Some are in plastic tubs sitting on moist pebbles. Those that need higher humidity to pitcher have a plastic cover over the tub. The grow rack has moveable shelves which is good for when the plants grow. It's 4'Wx18"Dx6'H. Lots of space, highly efficient, and cheap.

    I keep my fans on 24/7 for terrarium plants, and on only when the lights are on for my grow rack plants.

    Dear Peanuts1gang,

    I just posted a question in another thread about ventilating a minigreenhouse. I just noticed in your picture you had a cpu fan. Can I ask how you have it hooked up? Aren't the fan motors DC? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dwight

    well dwight, i went to radio shack to get a universal dc thing that as different voltages you can switch to. i striped the wires off that and put them together and wala. i set the dc voltage to 9, the lower you go, the slower the fan blows.

    i've been wondering this as well
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.
