    Rearranging Terrarium and Adding Another

    This is my current setup. I have my Highland Nepenthes and Heliamphora in a 20 gallon long tank and my sundews and cephalotus in a 10 gallon. My large plants are hanging from the side of my chameleon's cage. I am going to be adding reflective panels to the 10 gallon tank later today. I have a T5 shoplight with 2 32W Soft White bulbs for lighting. Should I get more lighting? As far as temperatures go, the highland terrarium is between 72-77F during the day and 63-66F at night. Humidity is at about 60% during the day and 70% at night. The sundews are pretty happy in their terrarium, though it should probably a little warmer for the scorpiodes, and there really isn't much humidity. Anyone have any suggestions as to if I should change anything with my setup?


    Full shot of my setup


    My Highland Nepenthes


    Heliamphora Minor- I want to get some Heterodoxa, but I can't find anywhere that has it in stock. Any ideas as to where I should check?


    Highland Terrarium with Reptifogger running


    Sundews and Cephalotus Follicularis- I will be adding reflective covering to the sides and back of the tank later today.


    Nepenthes Alata(2) and Nepenthes x Miranda


    I also want to grow some live spahgnum moss, but I can't seem to get it to grow for me. I have tried reviving long fiber spahgnum, but that hasn't worked yet. Is there a way to order some live?

    I agree...Your plants look great, no improvement seems to be needed.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    Wow very well grown plants you don't really need the Reptifogger those types of plants don't need high humidity but other than that cool setup!

    Thanks for all the nice comments. I know I don't really need to run the Reptifogger very much, but I live in Utah and it is really dry out here, so I run it for 2 min every 4 hours, though on an even lower fog output than in the picture. Does anyone have any idea of how to get some heliamphora heterodox? I can't find anywhere that has it in stock. Thanks again for the comments.

    Your right two min. every four hours won't hurt it good thinking.
