    Well. Some seeds I planted failed to germinate, so all I have now is a tank of peat, and some other additives... here are the measurements:

    12 inches long, 6 inces wide, and about 5 inches of head room (thats including the soil in there already)...

    Temps are about 90 during the day, and its humid... I'm guessing I should be looking at African species... Any suggestions?

    Thanks. Its your choise on what i shoudl put in there guys. Hehehe...

    I vote for Ultralowland Nepenthes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Ok, sorry wasn't one of the choices. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] Hmm.....go for a little more air circulation 90 may be a bit extreme for Drosera, the dew would evaporate off of thier traps!

    N. ampullaria springs to my mind as the smallest lowland. Just trim the climbing stems when they're produced and you will eventually end up with a carpet of ground rosettes. A tank full of the different varieties (green, speckled & red) would look pretty neat I think! Other than them I dunno of any warm growing neps that stay 5" or less.

    D.falconeri would require warm nights along with the 90 degree days. The drainage in the terrarium would have to be increased by mixing the peat with perlite etc. Plus, a lot of light(outdoors sun or strong artificial light) will be needed. Then there is the trouble of finding one...

    D.madagascariensis, sp.botswana, spathulata, capillaris, burmanii, byblis liniflora will likely grow well in your setup. I do not think any nepenthes will stay compact enough to grow in the terrarium longterm.
