I bought a set-up last December as a Christmas gift for myself.
The core of the media is long fibre sphagnum and the surrounding is leca balls. The 3" pot is netted like this one. My balcony is pretty hot and the average temperature of the water is about the low 80s.
Here are photos of the plants.

The current set-up and the plants from the top...was advised by Phill Mann to give the plants more light to reduce the growth of the moss as well as to colour up the pitchers. Yes, sir!!!
The result over the 8 months is pretty good even though the moss and the pitchers have turned yellow because of the heat wave. So, I decided to have another set.
New set-up from the top. No leca ball is being used as the pot is really small...not sure what's the effect.
Close-up of the plants - they just arrived at beginning of this month.
