    Those plants are etoliated, and the Sarracenia and Dionaea will require dormancy.


    If you didn't already, test the rocks with an acid before use.

    I did. I always get that wrong.

    Test any rocks with vinegar. If they fizz, they aren't usable.

    That means it's starved of light. It looks pretty dim there. Granite seems to have some good effects on sarrs.

    No, I misspelled it.

    Do you have any literature on granite and Sarracenia?

    move the sarracenia and flytraps out of the terrarium, and acclimate them to full sun. Then place them outside once acclimated and harden them off to the elements, you might be able to keep them outside during winter, what weather zone you live in?
    And the plants are etiolated there growth is elongated and they are really really green but I doubt thats becuase they're anthocyanin free clones. The nepenthes, their soil looks too wet they like moist soil, Oh double triple maybe even quadruple your lighting and get a tank that is not so tall so the plants are closer to the lights, you won't need a tall terrarium especially once you move the sarracenia out of there.
