    On the far right, in the second photo, is that a variegated V. planifolia? Kind of off topic but I was just wondering.

    Update!

    So both good and unexpected things have happened. Some plants I ordered arrived ahead of schedule, lol. Fortunately, I had just stocked up on supplies, I just had to use them with a little more urgency.

    The pet-store through which I had ordered a glass-top for my CP tank didn't come through; I won't even go into the excuse they tried to give me. The order was placed almost two weeks ago, and verified with two different people, so...

    I had gotten a couple thin sheets of acrylic plexiglass and jerry-rigged a lid so I could use the entire tank, rather than confining my little nep seeds to a Sterilite container. I also added in a heating element, set on the same time schedule as the lights. I'm still a little unsure as to what temps I need to keep for N. albomarginata and N. Reinwardtiana, so if someone could give me some figures, I'll see what I can do.

    I ran out of sunlight by the time I was done, so I'll get pics of the new sarracenia and my new table (it is truly a kickass little work table, believe me) tomorrow.

    Here's some pics of the terrarium setup, after I realized any pictures I take of it will look identical from 7:30-11:30. :P

    A close-up of the heating arrangement. It's a 100-watt submersible heater found on clearance at a major pet store for $10.

    And new plants:

    D. Spatulata, looking pitiful. (It was in it's shipping box for at least a week.

    P. Moctezumae, with a wilty-looking flower. Perk up! You're home now!

    More stuff coming tomorrow, as well.

    Thank you!

    And just a couple pics showing off the new Sarr. and dog-resistant growing area.

    Hopefully this year I can avoid getting any plants eaten. The peppers have already suffered losses. >.<

    I'll be adding some top-dressing today so it doesn't make a glorious mess whenever it rains.

    If you get tired of watering those individually, Tupperware containers are great for housing plants. Pretty cheap too
