    I gots a terrarium!! :-D

    I know the tank is small but its all I have for now. This includes a tank, 24 inch light, repti fogger, thermometer/humidity guage thingy, and some aluminum foil at the top to prevent humidity from escaping. I still need to get a fan or two. Sorry for my horrible photography.

    Probably shouldn't have the water filled humidifier sitting on the electrical lamp.

    Temps may climb in an enclosed space but if they are all Lowland Neps they will be just fine.

    I would try and find a different temp and humidity gauge that has a probe because i've gone through two of that exact same gauge. They don't last long in high humidity unfortunately.

    I've found that raising Lowland Nepenthes can be done easily in a terrarium by a windowsill with some clean pea gravel and water in the bottom. The water will evaporate as the sun hits it, and the gravel elevates the plants so they don't get too wet. My lowlands love it. I think it could work with the lamp, too, if you don't have a window. It's just a way to save some electricity.

    Nice, those have gotta be some happy neps now that they've got a nicely set up terrarium! That's a good looking tentaculata as well, mine's still just a tiny little thing.
