    uh oh, is that a healthy plug of utric I saw in there?

    thats going to overgrow that tank in a matter of minutes!

    ask crissytal she had a planted tank and her utrics took over the entire tank...

    something you may want to think about



    the tank looks really nice though,

    hopefully there wasn't a combination of tropical and temperate plants... becuase that'd be a mess come winter time...

    and now that I double check...

    every thing in that tank has different requirements almost...

    a bad idea for a planted tank unfortunately

    sorry

    Very nice Bloke! Though Chris is right, I did make the mistake of putting some Utrics in a planted terrarium that I had a couple years back. They will take over.

    Good luck!!

    EDIT: What temps is your terrarium getting? I ask because you are growing both Helis and Petiolaris Complex sundews together. I think that's interesting.

    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    While it's not exactly appropriate, it will be interesting to see which plants 'win' .... Please provide updates so we can see how things develop.
    All the best,

    I can't speak for the petiolaris variety that bloke is growing, but I've successfully grown D. falconerii in 65-70 degree F temps (with a slight temp drop) and ~60-70% humidity. As long as it gets enough light, and you always keep the soil moist (because it will begin the "inward spiral" if you consistently leave the soil drier), it will keep growing and getting bigger. However, higher temps may be critical for his petio.

    Nidiformis and Aliciae will grow well in there, and Adelae and Capensis eventually will take over in these conditions, although a bit slower than the Utrics Even if you think you dug the whole thing out, there will most likely be a few survivors, that will eventually take over. However, it will be a much slower take-over process if you take them out right away.

    It shouldn't be that hard with the D. rotundifolia, since it can be easily dug up and put in the fridge when it goes dormant (and yes, it most likely will go dormant on its own, no matter what photoperiod or warmth you give it ).

    The ceph should be perfectly fine. I have a small one that I've been growing from a leaf cutting for a half year now, and it just keeps getting bigger. Although my conditions aren't ideal, and growth has been slower, it still has about 15-20 smaller pitchers and keeps sending out new ones. Feeding it greatly speeds up growth.

    If those pings are Mexican, no problems either. They are very easy.

    If you have cooler temps, the Heli should be fine. It looks like its doing very well.

    The only things you might have to worry about are the Sarras and the Neps. Sarras like to naturally go dormant, for the most part, but they should be fine for a while (sometimes up to a few years before they get exhausted). Although, I "gave" my Cobra dormancy by chopping off all its dead leaves, and packing it up in the fridge. After I took it out recently, it is coming back to life quite nicely . Although this is NOT recommended by anyone, I had no other way to do this, since it was growing under lights, and it luckily worked for me. Depending upon what species of Nepenthes you have in there, they will either do well, or not so well. Some hybrids will thrive in any conditions you give them, but others are a bit more picky...

    so for the most part, you should be fine.
