    I mist/light water the top about once a week, and fill up the "bay" about once a week usually at the same time. Parts of the peat medium at the base are in the water but not much of it.

    That is so freaking cool. I may have to copy your idea someday, but with different plants. I love the standing water, looks like it would be a good aquatic Utricularia habitat.

    It would be a good Utricularia nightmare, I don't want to think about it .

    Would possibly be a good habitat for Utricularia graminifolia. I find that one likes to be semi-submerged.

    .... but within 6 months, I suspect the Utricularia graminifolia would assume the entire tank as 'good habitat'.

    I pulled the tank out to pluck some moss and thought I'd share what is happening on the walls of the tank.



    And here is some of the Drosera spilos I got from the auction this year, growing happily in there. No flowers or gemmae yet, but its getting colder here.



    And of course the reason for the thread.
