    I'm worried about that Cephalotus. They like their soil damp, not wet.

    Wow it looks great! I too hope everything will survive! How did you get the peat walls to work? I have seen similar design. It used foam walls that started from the top of one side slanting to just about the other side of the tank. Pockets in the foam heald the plants and media. Water constantly runs from top to bottom. Very sweet setup!

    I like the look. It's very natural. I'm especially impressed with the walls of the terrarium. I have to agree with the others regarding the level of wetness that they ceph is in. I imagine that right now, there's more water there due to 'construction' and that you'll let it air out a little more. It maybe a good idea to have the ceph on a slightly bigger mound to allow gas exchange and so that the roots aren't sitting so close to the water level. I also see what appear to be a dionaea - which again - will appreciate being a little drier than that. The drosera appear to be D. hamiltonii which grow alongside cephalotus, so again a little less wet might be the way to go. However, I love the look.
