    Hey Deathjester-

    Looks like your on your way to becoming a pro CP'er.

    Not a bad first time set up.

    I agree with using LFS, it will help with humidity.

    Fellow CP'ers here are great for help and advice.

    Have you ever heard of a young fella named Jeremiah Harris, he is also from Colorado, so you might want pick his brain (he is kinda like a god among CP'ers). Never met the person, but he sounds like a nice guy.

    Since he is not a vendor, I think I can post his website: http://www.coloradocarnivorousplantsociety.com/

    Check it out

    Welcome to the world of CP and Good Growing

    ps. poor Freddy

    Thanks for all the info guys much appreciated!

    I will snag some LFS when i get some more cash, there terrarium + plants has made money a bit tight for the month.
    Glider do you have any more pictures of your terrarium?
    Did you cover the bottom with straight up LFS then just put the pots on top of it?

    I am making a fan to complete my terrarium system like you said I should RSS. Yet again I just need the last few bucks for a 3 inch 120v fan from radio shack... soon o so soon.

    With this set up due you expect i will be able to grow my plant to a high quality level?
    I see photos of peoples nepenthes with super colorful perfect trap, but due not no how long or how well they have been growing there plants. it seems like my plants are "happy" but will i get most likely show quality, just normal plants, less?

    Ether way i'm sure I will have fun!

    i dont really have a picture of how it is right now. im in college and the plants are at home. haha. here it is though back in may of 08. back then they set on top of the LSF. now i have the live sphagnum growing on it and the plants are now set directly on the glass with the LFS surrounding them. so when you lift the pots up there is a big hole in the LFS mat.

    either way will work. just a matter of what you like best.

    Ya know, I wanted to do just that with the LFS and was disuaded. Here's what I have going, sans a heat mat:



    Temps range from low 70's - low 80's and humidity goes from the 50's - 80%

    AH-HA! Awesome that just hit my question that I had int even asked yet right an the head.
    My terrarium has almost that exact same fluctuations of temp and heat.
    Get to about 80-83 during the day at max then drops to the 65-70 range at night were the humidity spikes at 80 to 85% humidity. Do you think this will be fine for my highland Nepenthes? None are ultra highland Like N. Raja. Also they all seam to be settling in Fine... except my SP1. I think it still might be setteling in though. My Nepenthes. Atlata is to say the lease exploding. Since I have had it, (3 weeks) it made 3 traps!
    got any Pictures of your Nepenthes?

    I accept:the Sarracenia in there needs a winter dormancy. it wont last long in a heated terrarium.
    Those plants are really forgiving of low humidity and will grow just about anywhere. just a thought.
