    beautiful terrarium! excellent!

    I would say that your nep is N. aristolochioides x maxima, definantly not argentii, as the leaves are far too spaced. Although i wouldnt completely swear to it haha...

    How do you heat it? How about watering all those beauties?! You have an amazing slice of paradise there!

    That is a great terraium setup that you have. Well laid out, and it really maximizes your space. Can't wait to see what you will do with a 75 gallon setup. By the way, is that just a computer fan you are using for air circulation?

    Nice! I'm really interested in what species of miniature orchids you've got growing in there. I've always wanted to grow some alongside my neps and helis.

    It seems to me that it is a hybrid of aristolochioides, there is a picture of a argentii on the great nepethes picture thread, on the last page. Really nice collection though. http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...=84054&page=38

    Well, as for the fan, I was going to use a computer fan, but am not handy at wiring such things. This is a Coralife Cooling Fan, usually intended for their lighting fixtures, and they've recently started selling them seperately. They come with a disconnect, which is handy for squeezing the wire out through a small opening.

    Watering it, well, even after a couple years, I haven't gotten it down. I'd like to say I spray it once in the morning every day, taking particular note to make sure I give the carnivores plenty. But nowadays, I usually slack off, and end up watering it every 2 days or so. The orchids like it, but I think the carnivores (Cephalotus in particular) is protesting at the moment. The mother plant was much fuller and with larger traps beforehand. I use distilled water of course, except when I run out and have to resort to tap, which has happened a few times recently. Probably another reason for the CP protest. The heating is nonexistant...just whatever the room temperature happens to be...usually low-mid 70's.

    yeah its deff. not an Aristolochioides.
    its probably a hybrid like stated above. possibly spectabilis x aristolochioides. the hunch in the back is a deffinite sign of aristolochioides or klossii hybrids, as far as i know, there are no klossii hybrids available. however there are a ton of aristo hybrids. a better picture would help :P

    Yea, yea...I know. My photography skills leave a lot to the imagination. I'll work on getting a better picture tomorrow or so.

    As for a list of orchids in the terrarium, I'm only going to go on what I can think of offhand. I'm only listing ones that are doing well in the conditions in the terrarium. There are several that, for whatever reason, are not doing well.

    Pleurothallis grobyi
    Pleurothallis stricta
    Pleurothallis microphylla
    Tristella cordeliae
    Zootrophion serpentinum
    Dendrobium lichenastrum
    Dendrobium prenteciae
    Dendrobium (Dockrilla) wasselii
    Cirrhopetalum (Bulbophyllum) tingabarianum
    Ascocentrum miniatum
    Neofinetia falcata
    Podochilus cultratus
    Platystele ximenae
