    well you know how in a terraium one side is not closed. well if that side is pointing up then howw can you keep the humidity high?
    and Anther idea could i fill the bottom of the tank with water (1-1 1/2 inch) so i wouldnt have to have all the small sausers?

    Yes put the tank on it's glass bottom with the open side facing up and get an all glass lid fron the fish/pet store with the flexible rubber hinge. It keeps the humidity in and keeps dust and bugs etc. out. If you are only growing common sundews, butterworts and bladderworts you can fill the tank with 1-2" of water and not worry about using saucers (be sure to only use distilled water from the grocery store-not boiled tap water or bottled spring water).
    Nepenthes, epiphytic bladderworts, etc can not sit in water because their roots will rot. If you want to keep all of these in one tank you will have to get creative, such as making the lake on the bottom for the sundews and putting a nepenthes pot ontop of another (empty) pot which keeps the nepenthes pot out of the water.
