    No i absolutely agree im just saying that i will cost a little bit more than having a bunch of $20 plants, it would be so sweet if you had one of those terrariums.... If you end up doing keep me updated on the pics (terrarium, plants, etc) and show the terrarium your gonna use ;-)

    people might say nice plant but they won't drool over a setup with ventricosa, it would be for my private collection and I can stick to just pots for plants that I grow to sell.
    I sold a plant for 3.25 and charged someone 4.99 for shipping, turns out shipping was 7.00$
    and it was a small box with only one plant in it.
    I got two sarracenia and a highland truncata yesterday in a box 4 times as large and it only cost 5.05$ to ship that box. When I said it was a plant the lady said okay its perishable and potentially hazardous, do you think they charge extra to ship anthra.. I mean sundew

    I will it might take me a while its not the most important thing right now but I definitely want to do a tank and have a waterfall in the background and have nepenthes planted and I will see if there is any small shrubs that grow with whatever nepenthes I go with in the wild and I'll buy one or two and put them in the tank.
    for example wikipedia says N. sibuyanensis has the fern dipteris conjugata growing with it in the wild and that at one point it's sympatric with nepenthes argentii, maybe I will just ditch the nepenthes from a region thing and just get plants that require the same conditions and then just make a really nice setup.

    Just out of curiosity, how are you going to do a waterfall in a tank without "over-watering" your plants?

    Unless the terrarium is seriously massive or there is so little water, in order to have a constant flowing waterfall you would have to have some standing water, meaning that it would also be wicked away into the soil, keeping the soil soaked. That is, unless you use some sort of liner, but they don't have those in the wild, do they?

    Well no but do they have terrariums in the wild What he could do i have a pool of water under the plants and the main ground cover and have like egg crate over it and cover the parts with plants and all and than leave it open where the water will flow through so it goes into the pool making a 'underground' resevoir to feed the falls
