    Smallest CP species for a terrarium?

    Hey all,


    I have a small 8x12x8" terrarium for plants only. I am looking for a small CP plant that can go in the substrate on the bottom of the tank. However, Id like to place the smallest CP species I can find, since I love small plants.

    I know there are pygmy sundews, but Im not sure what if any mini species do well in terrarium settings.

    Thanks for your help.

    Some temperate climate US natives that would fit in that space: venus flytrapper, purple pitcher, parrot pitcher, the whole "little bug" series of pitcher plants, round leaf sundew, oblong leaf sundew, northern threadleaf sundew.

    Utrics are about as small as you get......problem with sundews is they tend to rot without good air circulation

    I would also say that utrics are as small as you can get, but they may quickly infest the whole tank.

    I figured utric sandersonii would be my only choice. Someone mentioned a venus fly trap which is way larger than Id like. This is a mat growing species, correct?
