    My burmannii didn't like it, I guess. I just tried with an offshoot from the mother plant I have. Just an experiment to see what would happen.. hah, and I guess it happened... in 1.5 days...

    Any tips on watering techniques for planted terrariums?

    I usually just use a spray bottle and saturate the whole thing when it starts to look dry.. But the Drosera don't like the water on their tentacles that much! Ha, takes like 2 days to get dew again!

    Also, incase anyone actually reads this thread... Here's an update..

    New light! Much brighter! It's a compact fluorescent with a reflector hood. Fits right on top, but it's a little gaudy. And I have to move the terrarium to a new spot in the house because now it's just way too bright where it's at!!!



    The terrarium is a bit unorganized and messy but it's still in transition, trying to figure out how everything works and how the plants respond. Any suggestions on layout or organization would be great!



    I'll take any critique! Help it improve, FOR THE PLANTS~

    I have a false-bottom setup that is somewhat 'self-watering' (For non-cp plants, but it would work the same, I think)

    The false bottom is lifted on legs, about 2 inches from the bottom of the terrarium. A piece of rope goes from the bottom of the terrarium (draped across the floor under the false bottom, up through the false bottom, and rests under the soil).

    There is a tube in one corner that goes through it all, so I can pour water directly into the bottom of the terrarium, which functions as a reservoir. The rope wicks it up into the soil.

    I might be able to find some pictures...
