    VERY nice!
    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer

    Max, how many CP's (just the adult ones) are in that picture? As with Capslock and a few others, I have found that Neps (at least ventrata, Judith Finn, and sanguinea) do well in hanging baskets or planters, right at a window. The only caveat is that when its fall/winter there needs to be some semblence of artificial lighting to supplemnt. Otherwise the plants tend to stop pitchering.

    As said earlier, VFT's do best when outside. Also said earlier, humidty is overrated and when moving plants from one environement to another, they should be acclimated, instead of tossed into it - especially recenyly purchased or recently shipped to you.

    Here is a pic of Neps in a planter, by an attic window, just a month ago:



    Here is a typical "open tray" setup of traopical sundews, most of which are flowering:



    These are dormancy requiring plants that I keep outside for most of the year and in buckets of minbogs (VFT's, Sarracenias, cobra lily, D. filiformis, D. binata, D. rotundifolia, D. intermedia):



    Welcome to TF!

    ok, so I got rid of the water, put my smaller VFT outside, (since it has just finished raining and is cloudy) and added some woodsy decor. Anybody see anything wrong? Let me know, I'll fix it. Also, these are pics of my back yard. My front yard is just a parking lot, so the plants couldn't go there. The back yard faces west.

    Should be okay. Just keep an eye on them. Healthy plants can withstand the changes much better than recently shipped or garden center plants

    That is pretty similar to my area, only I have lots of smaller trees.





    My VFT's do awsome under these trees. So you don't have to worry about a thing.

    The pics don't do it justice but the trees are FAR more dense than you see in the pics.

    yea, and same here. It IS more dense than the pics look. But like I said, I grew up in southeastern OK, so I know your area, copcar. Any thoughts on the new terrarium setup?

    Looks fine to me. Now the hardest thing to do is to leave it alone. Your gonna want to change little things here and there to make it better for the plants. But in the end they will grow best if you do nothing but water them. So that means...

    No moving
    No cutting
    No poking
    NO EXPERIMENTING
    No changing your watering schedule
    No changing your bulbs to something you think is "Better"
    No changing the photoperiod
    No changing the temps or humidity.

    None of that, Just leave them alone and let them grow.
