    Need help deciding a Nepenthes for my terrarium

    I'm setting up an indoor terrarium this week and I need help deciding a Nepenthes for it. I have a Nepenthes glabrata and a Nepenthes singalana. Only one can be allowed in the terrarium.

    glabrata
    Pros: stays compact, dainty appearance, nice colors
    Cons: pitchers remain small, not thrilled with the long tendrils

    singalana
    Pros: cool looking pitchers (love the teeth on them), stays fairly compact for awhile
    Cons: will eventually outgrow it's space



    So, between these two Nepenthes, which one should I pick?

    If you really want it in there for long run, I say glabrata, only because it is so small, and seems to like terrariums very much.

    I'm sure you'll grow to love it if you get it.

    Niether no carnivorous plants should be kept in a little cage with WAY TOO MUCH HUMIDITY how much humidity will it have and is there going to be a lid. There are only a few exceptions with some carnivorous plants that need that humidity. so don't grow them in that terrarium please it's like giveing them back to uh oh the unthinkable LOWE'S/HOME DEPOT/WAL-MART/OTHER PEOPLE WHO DON'T KNOW HOW TO GROW CARNIVOROUS PLANTS.

    P.S PLEASE DON'T LET THEM BE TOURCHERED PLEASE!

    @eou: i grow almost all my plants---in a cage---with 90% humidity during the day, 100% at night. it works if you know what you're doing.

    and ps: glabrata IS one of those plants that have high humidity demands, otherwise they dont pitcher.

    No humidity measurements were given, how do you know that he has way too high humidity?

    Also, a beginner has the right to start somewhere. Maybe some mistakes will be made, but that's how we learn.
