    What's it potted in? Your potting mix has a lot of influence over what other environmental conditions (light, temperature, air circulation) your plants will tolerate/appreciate.

    It's potted in what looks like vermiculite, sphagnum, and maybe peat. Whatever mix it was shipped in from Andy. It seems pretty airy, loose and decent. But Maybe I have kept it a bit too water logged at times.

    an equivalent to 100 watts CFL bulb is pretty weak, especially filtered through a terrarium. Plus a terrarium is not the place for a ventricosa. Your bical, yes. If it is flourishing there, your ventricosa isn't going to. Wrong conditions. Can you buy a clamp lamp and angle it onto the plant, and put the plant in another location like on a shelf or something?

    Well I wouldn't say the Bical is flourishing, simply because it is winter at the moment. But alright, Point taken. Terrarium for a ventricosa = no good.

    So Should even though It has been moved two or three times in the last couple months, Move it once more to an open location with it's own light?

    i think so. Any time the plant is not happy to begin with, more added stress of yet another change might be hard on it. You may not see much improvement for a while, but ventricosas are hardy. They can usually handle it. If you lose it let me know, I've got plenty and can send you another one to try out.
