    So the Highland Nepenthes and Heli should be fine together? And my guess the temps are around 70-80 during the day maybe around 50 at night? I will buy a temp soon so I can update the actual temps.

    mluk do you have any more photos of terrarium construction to post? And what do you have in the eggcrate cube in the back corner? And where did you get your non cps? Cool stuff.

    You have a really cool set up, are you planning only have the plants in there or are you going to put any animals/insects in there?

    Thanks everyone.
    Peat: That's the only picture I have because its pretty much everything there was to do I just attached cork bark with zip ties to the eggcrate and stuff moss in the back and in the cracks of the cork bark. The cage is for the pump for the drip wall. I got all of my non cps from random nurseries and all the orchids in the back my brother gave me.
    Monkey Cup: I wanted to get some poison dart frogs but I am stating to run out of room and I dont know if some of the plants will like the same environment as the frogs. Eventually I will figure something out so I can get them because they're just to cool!

    From the list you provided, everything would do better with cool conditions except for the N. ampularia.
    D. scorpioides also grows better with a little cool temperatures, as it is a winter growing sundew in the wild. Those are pretty close to the temps you want for the "Highland" varieties, though you might want to get the peak temp down to 75 or so, as 80 might be starting to push it depending on what Heli you got. The N. truncata varieties are quite adaptable and do well with intermediate temps, to which the N. ampularia could probably adapt to as well (though it wouldn't be quite as happy).

    Some of the plants could possibly use a bit more light as well, if you can provide it (the Ceph and D.scorpioides in particular).

    I agree that it is a beautiful set up though, good job
