    What temp does everyone keep their terrarium?

    I'm growing sundews (adelae) with temps in the low to mid 80's F, but it seems a little warm for them.

    My temps vary a lot, but they seem to be around 70-85 during the day and 60-70 at night. Right now it's been a lot cooler. They seem to do fine. Don't seem to be too picky about temps to me. Just humidity.

    Low to mid-80 highs should be fine for most tropicals. Petiolaris complex plants want it hotter (80-100F), Brasilian species and some South Africans would prefer it a bit cooler (55-75F). Burmanii seems to prefer it hot as well.

    My dew tank is about 85+ during hotter days (i place the tank next to a windowsill) and on cooler days, it will be cooler. I dont keep a real temp. range in my terrariums, but i make sure humdity is 60= always.
