    I would like to try to set up a lowland terrarium for Nepenthes plants. I currently have a pretty good intermediate - type of terrarium going with my N.pilosa growing very good, along with N. burbidgea and some sundews. I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a good source of information about how to create a good enviroment for some of the lowlanders (i.e. best way to keep temps in 90's, etc). I would probably use a large Gro-light and a 15 to 25 gallon aquarium as the enclosure. Any help would be appreciated and i will be looking thru past posts.
    Thanks

    Just the tank and the lights might do it. It helps if the tank rests on a shelf with another set of lights. That way the lower lights serve as a heating pad and provide light for other plants at the same time.
