    Thanks Joe,
    I like both of those ideas. Addressing the two main issues, light availability and physical space.
    Now I need to get some Utricularia and some Drosera prolifera! Anybody want to trade for some 3 year old Sarracenia?

    I'm having a shortage of D. prolifera, but I might be able to help you out with some U. gibba - my big terrarium has finally recovered from the clean-out I did a few months back and there's a dense strand working it's way around the third edge of the tank. You'll have to wait your turn, though, as I owe things to about three other people and need to get those done before I start promising to other people. I'll do my best to contact you once I have a chance to get to the post office.

    i got a ton of gibba i can pick from if your still lookin. i dont think it will flower with constant flowing water though but works great as a algae combatant.

    what about algae in the plants

    ive thought about doing this with my terrariums but i was worried about watering the plants with water full of algae. is this something that i shouldn't worry about? i love the idea of using Utricularia to combat the algae and im going to give it a try.

    Does anyone else think that Miranda and Lady Pauline are terrible names for a male plant?

    Now I'm wondering if Utricularia floating in the water might clog the water pump. I'll have to come up with a creative way to screen off the pump.
