    Hello from Michigan...

    My name is Denise, I have just started collecting CP's.. a little while back Acro suggested I join here, he was very nice and sent me a few plant cuttings, which I am embarrassed to say.. I didn't do well with... sorry Acro... I have been lurking lately... so I figured I should say hi.. and introduce myself...

    I went to a reptile show the other day and picked myself up a Valentines gift, I fell in love with it... this is what I got...

    Welcome aboard.

    I'm seeing a few major problems with your terrarium though. 2 of the 3 species of carnivorous plants you have are temperate and will need winter dormancies that will kill the other tropical plants growing in there. Not to mention that the Sarracenia will quickly outgrow that space if it survives long enough. That moss the designer chose is also a very bad choice for cp's.

    I've seen little terrarium set ups like thing being sold before and the people making them go for esthetics rather than function. They add plants to them that look good at the moment without putting any thought into whether or not they will actually work in the terrarium together.

    Johnny beat me to it, that terrarium was definitely put together to entice an impulse buy. Welcome TF!
