    well, if it's a potted-landscape terrarium(i mean by having pots in the soil) should i water the pots or the soil? cause if i water the soil, it would get to the pots, right?

    Probably better to water the pots directly when you can, particularly for the wet-loving species. I've successfully grown small Neps with a sort of "tray" method in a potted/landscaped tank, but I think it may be too dry for the preferences of, say, some Drosera. Depends a lot, of course, on where you keep the water line. Also, watch for spreading Utrics.
