    Nice! Live sphagnum is a great base for Nep pots. Did you put a solid substrate underneath? I've had great luck growing Neps with improvised Slack-pots, as used in Drosophyllum culture; I have a pot of live Sphagnum and perlite in water, and I rest my Nep pots (plastic pots or net pots) on the Sphagnum to wick water back up to the plants. It greatly reduced my need for watering, until I switched back to a more conventional layout after cleaning out the terrarium. I'm going to try it again next time I have time for a redesign.

    Hi there I am now using Perlite and vermiculite and the live sphagnum only since that will not mess or dirt the terra down like iff I had some peat. So I am gonna test and see how it works.

    You might consider fired ceramic, especially since you don't have it in containers. It won't compact and turn to dust the way perlite will. You may want to take the vermiculite out altogether; it has a way of rotting.
