    new here but new to plants

    ]Hello Brian here from asheville nc,
    I am not new to carnivorous plants. I have been growing them outside all summer and now it is getting cold so I am making a terrarium to grow them in. I put this one together today after work and I am still working on it...if anyone would like to chime in and give a little help that would be cool...
    I am going to get a light

    welcome!! Just a little critique, but from the looks of it all of those plants require dormancy so leaving them outside would probably be a better choice.

    they seem to all need to go dormant, putting them back outside would be better then sticking them in a terrarium.


    EDIT: darnit krudgz you beat me to it. lol.

    The boys are right.
    Sarrs require dormancy, so one way or another, you need to make sure they experience lessened photoperiod and cold temperatures during winter, rather than a warm terrarium. Same for temperate sundews.
    However, any tropical sundews would benefit from that terrarium.

    ps. turning brown and dying leaves is what happens during dormancy.

    the girl is right, the leaves die back and your left with a rhizome.
