    Well Got my terrarium done..Holding at 77.8 F and 80% humidity

    Well Got my terrarium done..it is Holding at 78.5 F and 80% humidity and I am running a timer for the lights at 12 light and 12 dark. if anyone has a better time for the lights let me know.

    I added a small fan for circulation and that made all the difference in the world,,The plants look very happy and I am keeping a chart for new growth/ conditions/ and changes.
    but all in all they look happy.

    That sounds like the absolute best setup in the world for neps and helis if the night temp could drop to at least 64F.....but considering that you are growing a sarracenia in there you might need to bump up the light hours to 14 or so in the summer. sarrs need more light hours during the growing season than neps and other tropicals. (Keep in mind the dormancy for sarrs)
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    those two hybrid nepenthes will love it in there. Soon you'll have to get a bigger set up for them!

    Neps will do fine..
    Sarrs will die..

    you shouldnt keep sarracenia in a terrarium..its very bad for them.
