    It's fine to mix species, as long as their cultivation requirements match up. E.g. mixing warm growing petiolaris complex with highland South American Drosera isn't going to go well.
    D. capensis and D. spatulata / x tokaiensis (spoon leaves) have basically the same needs, so they should be fine. The only thing I'd be worried about is the D. capensis overgrowing any smaller plants you have in there. Pygmy Drosera might be more of a stretch since you'll need to account for the summer resting period.

    Oh, I thought that pygmy sundews were tropical. perhaps I'll go with some spoon leaves and a few spatulata. Would plant lights for an aquarium be suitable to light the terrarium with?

    Pygmy sundews are (sub)tropical, but generally have a drier summer dormancy period. It's not necessary for all species, in particular Drosera scorpioides will grow year-round.

    Huh, I thought they mostly formed above the surface. Perhaps the images I have seen have been of oddball species.

    I've heard that you should always try to avoid this dormancy, as sometimes it can be hard to bring them back out alive. Do you know the species that would want the dry dormancy?

    I've heard that as well, but I was under the impression that most species will go dormant whether you want them to or not. I could be wrong, I'm not really a pygmy grower.
