    Question plants for a simple terrarium?

    Hey there! Ive had a simple terrarium made from an apothecary jar for about 5-ish months; The only plants that I had/have in it are a U. pubescens, and a U. fulva (sulked during winter and is now officially dead ).. the U. pubescens seems to like it and is now (finally) spreading around a bit. Sooo, my question is what else do you think I could put in? The medium I used in the jar is a mixture of coconut coir (thoroughly washed), pearlite and sand, followed by a layer of aquarium charcoal, followed by a layer of sand. I'll try and take a pic of the terrarium/jar tomorrow to give you all an idea of what Im working with.
    Thank you

    Heres the pics of the apothecary terrarium and the Utricularia Pubescens in it (just realized a bit of mold is starting to grow again, I find that chamomile tea gets rid of it fairly quickly though)

    I couldn't imagine adding any more. The utrics are going to soon cover the top of the soil. Maybe a cape.
