    or N. glabrata. N. bellii is a good lowlander too.

    D. burmanii...most utrics as people have said...try the 'petite dragon' VFT.

    Will this be kept inside, or outside? Indoors will probably be easier in terms of controlling temperature and watering. Where you'll be keeping it will largely determine what you'll be able to grow. Although sundews aren't the best in enclosed conditions, something small and easy like D. spatulata or burmanii should be easy enough to satisfy. U. sandersonii is another great candidate - they flower easily and put on a good show. I would suggest that you drill some drainage holes in your container to prevent the soil from accumulating dissolved minerals. A glass/ceramic drill bit set costs about $8.

    I would say if you do use sarracenia, grow them outside

    I'd be careful with Utric's thou, they might play a little game of Risk and take over the terrarium. Anyway check out http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...=115965&page=3 for a groundcover Utric I'm using.

    That looks like a unique groundcover. In the past Ive used gonocormus sp. and plagiomnium sp.

    Oh, and the tank will be inside if that matters.
