    Im going to pick up a thermometer today so I can regulate my temps I actually just got my H. Minor in today, so I definitely need to pay attention to the temps. I dont think I dont have any more room for lighting since I already have to two t5s and the CF. I figured it should be enough, I guess I'll have to see!

    I think your lighting will be ok. If Cephalotus don't get strong lighting then they tend to stay green but produce larger pitchers. As others have said, I think you need to decide what you are aiming for, i.e. highland, intermediate or lowland and keep whichever suits in there.

    Two new tanks I set up the one on the left is pretty full thanks to mass.. from left to right (veitchii x eymae, Aristo, Hamata, (fusca x veitchii) x Copelandii 'Mt Apo', tobaica x talangensis)
    In the front are some D. capensis seeds and a typical cephalotus. The tank on the left has a H. pulchella.

    Saran wrap over the tops of the pots?! What do you have those plants potted in if I may ask? I'd be afraid of keeping them too wet, but maybe it's because I'd be watering too often at 1X week.

    Uhh well I was reading on growsundews.com and he was saying he saran wraps the container he puts them in to keep the humidity up.. since I dont have a container I just filled the pots about half way up with media and then saran wrapped the topped.. their capensis, narrow leaf and alba i only sprinkled a few on there just for an experiment since I have limited to space I wanted to see if I could get them to grow like that.
