    Unhappy

    Hey,

    This site sells one terrarium kit with nepenthes, i thought they were very prone to root rot? How do I handle this?

    So if I get a terrarium, should I worry about root rot with the neps or any other plant in there?

    Thanks in advance

    Well first of all you could keep the plant in its pot and put that in the terrarium,or you could put a layer of perlite on the bottom of the terrarium about 2 in. deep and not let the water level go above this. Thirdly you could choose a nep that likes swampy conditions like N.mirablis,or N.bicalcurata(SP?)
