    Thanks for all the input guys. I got the live sphagnum on eBay, just do a search for 'carnivorous plants' and you'll find at least 2 auctions for it.
    Xvart is correct, some of those CP's don't like sitting half submerged, like the VFT does, and for moving them around, for the time being, I'll leave them in their pots. The humidity is arounf 70-75 percent during the day and increases to 95+ percent at night. As for the lighting, the 2, 100w CFL's seem to be doing the trick. I've been using them for about 6 weeks now and all the plants are growing vigorusly. I have the knockout for the water filter pump in the back of the lighting hood open. I'd guess it's an area of about 10-15 percent, open and that seems to be enough of an opening for ventilation as my temp in the house is 74 and in the terrarium it's 80 with the lights on.

    Here are a few more pictures.

    Right half.



    Again, thanks for the comments and I keep you posted on it's progress.
    Oh yes, the round spots on the 'foil' covering the back and sides of the tank are from Christmas 'foil' wrapping paper. Maybe Santa will bring me some real mylar... Ho! Ho! Ho!

    very well done. looks very neat and well thought of. Definately better than planting it in directly as I did last year.
