    My tropical terrarium and windowsill plants.

    Here are a few pictures of my terrarium. It currently houses the following: N. alata, ampullaria 'Harlequin', 'Black Knight', sanguinea, singalana, ventricosa, ventricosa x N. spathulata, D. binata "multifida extrema", and D. tokaiensis.







    Some kind of strange moss growing in my N. 'Black Knight' container. It looks like a more stringy and slimy version of live sphagnum moss:



    Here is my fishbowl Drosera terrarium. It currently has D. nidiformis, D. spatulata, D. venusta, and D. x 'transvaal':



    My Ceph's have grown quite a bit since I've started feeding freeze dried bloodworms every couple weeks. They also enjoy the coffee treatment:



    P. moranensis, P. pirouette, and P. jaumavensis growing in a turtle ashtray:

    I've only done some very light experimentation with the Ceph coffee treatments. 2 Tablespoons of cold coffee once a month in the last 4 months. My plant is a 'typical' but it now produces pitchers that are slightly bigger than my thumb. Mind you this could simply be a result of the plant naturally maturing. I haven't had much experience with growing the other Ceph cultivars.

    It's been a while since I've added a picture of my terrarium. Here it is now after a few months of regular monthly coffee treatments and very minimal feeding using freeze dried bloodworms. I've changed things up a bit. Most of my Nepenthes are lowlanders or hybrids. I still haven't added grow lights but they seem to be doing great in the summer sun. Inside temps go up in the lower 80s and 90s in the late afternoon and early evening.



    My terrarium is already starting to get quite crowded. Flower stems and tendrils are creeping out of the ventilation openings.
