    Terrapin died...so what to do with a 20g long?

    My concentric diamond back terrapin died today. D: so i'm trying to figure out best plants to go with, whatever works in a terrarium. I know I miss my CP's, so someone suggest what to house with them and i'll build it.

    Lots of Nepenthes and Drosera are good for terrariums, butterworts too.

    Are you planning on having any animals as well? If and which animals you choose is a factor to consider.

    I'd stay away from Nepenthes in a 20 long, it's much too low for all but the smallest plants. Great for many Drosera and Utricularia though.

    Lots of Utricularia, Drosera, Genlisea, maybe Pinguicula and Byblis would probably do well in there.

    Ah yes Cthulhu youre right, I didnt realize they mentioned how big the terrarium is. Nepenthes are too big for that.
