    Hey Chloroplast, to solve the problem of the temperates blowing away, get yourself a nice, cheap plastic bowl at Home Depot. You can get 14" diamter or bigger, depending on how many plants you have. These bowls ( they're really planters, so look with the pots) make really great bog bowls, and filled with medium are certainly way too heavy to blow away.

    Sounds good, and the fact that they're plastic (instead of terra cotta) means no mold/fungus growing on the pot which seems to be a never-ending battle for me.

    You know, I might get another plastic planter for some tall Sarracenia that I can't grow in the terrarium. The pitchers won't fit in the crisper draw for dormancy, but I can just cut them off.

    Now that the wind issue is solved, I just have to stand guard with a shotgun for a couple of days to scare off the curious squirrels and kids (lol)! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    one other question....is the following watering setup correct?

    i have my heli, sundew (d. adelae), ping (primuliflora), s.purpurea, and VFTs standing in 1" of water. my neps are not standing in water.

    i'm pretty sure this is the right setup, with the exception of the heli which I have heard conflicting advice regarding whether it should be left in standing water.

    the plants look like they're doing fine....the sundew, ping, VFTs and s.purpurae are sprouting new leaves, the heli and neps haven't made new growth but haven't deteriorated either. just want to prevent future root rot..... thanx.
