    Some of the potted plants that I have in the terrarium are still in saucers but some I've been setting into the soil until they can be planted but they seem to dry out so much..

    Will it be better when I plant them or is the soil under the pots is too dry

    The D. dielsiana that I planted into the terrarium, have just started to produce the dewy tentacles!!!!!!!

    Yay! Now, I might try to plant a couple more dielsiana.

    I've unplugged my heat mat because it seems when it's plugged in the humidity leaves get too high. Now without it they stay around 68-75%

    My D. burmannii is still doing AMAZIng in the terrarium but its started to put up a stalk so I might cut that off very soon!

    The D. capensis don't like it too much in the terrarium, they seem to like my windowsill situation much more.

    We put the lights up and out of the tank. I'll take better pictures during the daytime when you can see it better.

    Nice pictures! Is there any reason that a plant is growing in a Sprite can? Does it grow better that way?

    Probably didn't have a Mountain "Dew" can handy :>}
    What do you do when you see an endangered animal that eats only endangered plants?

    hahaha, I didn't have a small pot at the time and wanted to start a leaf cutting so I used what I had :P
    Seems to work! Although, I try not to do it too much because the the can might start to leach metals into the soil.

    Update:

    D. burmannii loves my tank.
    D. capensis HATES IT! But when I take them out and put them back on the windowsill they do fine.. So maybe my tank is too hot for them??
    Nepenthes love my tank as well..
    D. dielsiana is still struggling!
