Using your advice, I just put the final touches on the terrarium and bought some CPs which are:
The following are sitting in shallow water:
D. spatulata (2)
D. muscipula (VFT)
The following are not sitting in water:
Conditions: 80W light (plants 6" from light) on for 14hr/d, humidity >90%, fan for air circulation, top of tank completely sealed. Plants bought from a store that specializes in CPs/terrariums.
1. I was told that the Neps and D.adelae prefer less bright light relative to the others and that they should be placed in a separate terrarium. What do you guys think? I'd rather not do this.
2. I've read and was told that Heliamphora requires a nighttime temp drop. It's difficult for me to do this; is this condition absolutely necessary? I realize that to maximize healthiness, the plant should be in optimal environmental conditions, but I also realize that some rules can be "bent" with minimal consequence to the plant....just want to see if this is one of those cases).
3. I know it's still summer, but I asked about dormancy. Seems like the Sars and VFTs need dormancy. When should I start thinking about this?
Any advice on the above or advice on unmentioned topics would be great. Thanks again for the help you've given me in the past. If I can get myself a digitial camera, I'll post some pics soon.
