Sundew newbie (sundewbie?) in need of advice. *Thanks in advance.
I am using a "long" 20-gallon tank for my terrarium, which means that it is about a foot or so tall. *I thought I was being very clever, as this would provide better light intensity and more room for pots. *I did not consider height.
What sundews, assuming a 4 inch tall pot and thus 8 inch clearance, will grow properly in this tank? *I don't want them flattening out across the plexiglas top and burning out from the lights. *I was hoping to maintain them year-round at about 80 F and 75% or so humidity, unless that's wrong, of course.
I could shorten the pots. *I was considering playing up the glass rectangle of the terrarium by using squarish, colored glass "pots" of various heights and widths (or a drinks tray and plastic cups--sundew juleps!) for the plants. *I could get them down to 3 inches this way.
Thanks again. *If you want to vote between the designs, please do. *I will post pictures after the plants have established themselves.
