    Introducing Wolfn's Indoor Terrarium

    I am proud to introduce my first proper indoor terrarium. It's a ten-gallon tank with a 125 watt light on top. The sides are lined with white cardboard and aluminum foil. Temperature is a steady 85 degrees (with a drop at night when the light is off).

    I am growing the following plants successfully in the terrarium:
    * Dionaea muscipula "Low Giant"
    * Heliamphora minor
    * Cephalotus follicularis
    * Nepenthes singalana
    * Drosera capensis "Narrow"
    * Drosera filiformis "Red"
    * Drosera adelae
    * Pinguicula agnata "El Lobo"
    * Pinguicula caerulea
    * Pinguicula tehuacan
    * Genlisea lobata x violacea
    * Utricularia calcifida
    * Utriculara graminifolia
    * Utricularia livida


    Exterior of the terrarium:


    The reflective panel on the front can fold down to reveal the interior:


    Brief look at the interior:


    Cephalotus (went from green to red within a few days of being placed inside the terrarium):


    Drosera capensis "Narrow":


    Tropical section (Nepenthes singalana, Heliamphora minor, Genlisea):


    Heliamphora minor with Drosera filiformis "red":


    Pinguicula caerulea (with some pine needles on top since caerulea tends to grow in pinelands)







    So, what do you think?

    I think you got yourself a fantastic setup, everything looks so.....happy!



    Only one tiny issue....N.singlana and the ceph may find day temps of 85f to be a bit to high in the long haul....the H.minor might not like it either, but I hear minor can grow in lowland temps...so I'm not entirely sure.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Wow, lotta light you got there!

    As long as the plants like it, that's all that matters. Please keep us updated on how your N. singalana does! (good choice, btw) Mine is growing very slow and I'm not sure how happy it is with my conditions, it hasn't even pitchered yet.

    The entire light was about $93 (free shipping). I also bought an extra bulb for $30 because some of the Amazon comments says that their bulbs arrived broken so I thought it would be safe to have a backup.
