    My First Plants!

    Hello everyone! Today I went to the Orchid Expo and got my first plants for my terrarium!

    Nice ampullaria! It's weird how the leaves have red dots on them, though.

    Nice Plants! Looks like a nice terrarium, did you make that yourself? With the N. Ampullaria you are going to want to keep it quite humid in there. As far as the red dots, that seems to be fairly common so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Stoked to see your tank with plants! Very jealous that you can get to an Expo like that. Those are such nice plants. Ordered me a VFT off of a site I have used before and it is crazy dormant and small, I think it is even smaller than it should be. Would be awesome if mine was as mature as yours. Yours looks great!

    Enjoy growing!

    not for certain but that ampullaria looks like it could be a 'lime twist'. Congrats on the plants btw and hopefully many more to fill up all that space you have

    Thanks everyone! Yeah the guy who sold me the amp said it was a lime twist because of the green inside the pitchers.. Will be ordering more plants this week!

    I have lime twist too, and yours indeed looks like it. The burns on the leaves mean that the lighting is too strong. I have noticed this on my amps, enough shade and no burn marks.
    Looking for N. Campanulata hybrids. Also would like to grow some nepenthes from seed. Growlist/pic thread: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...-Pete-s-plants
