Hello everyone, it's been a while.
About 2 1/2 years ago, I became obsessed with Nepenthes. Long story short, kill count = 4, lost about 60 bucks worth of material, and general being-annoyed-at-life. Age = 12 1/2. For the past year however, I figured I'd start simple, and work my way back up. Got 2 D. capensis plants, built a terrarium out of a 10gal tank and a grow-light, got a steady supply of distilled water from the supermarket (The hard water might have been the nail in the earlier plants coffins), gained some life experience, and managed not to kill the sundews for over a year. Now, at age 15, fresh into high school, I figured "Hey, I have a few hundred dollars saved up, why not take another attempt at one of my favorite hobbies, and greatest challenges." I've put together a list of things (via amazon) that I'd need to build a bigger terrarium, and it would be really nice if someone could tell me if they think it could as a highland Nepenthes terrarium.
1) Base structure;
Zilla 28021 20-Gallon Critter Cage, 30-Inch by 12-Inch by 12-Inch (actual 20gal aquarium tank) http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A3RSTMGEETZS7Z
Perfecto Manufacturing APF33300 Glass Canopy Aquarium, 30-Inch (lid for tank)
2) Light fixture;
Aqueon LED Aquarium Light Fixture, 30-Inch
(Sidenote; I have an automatic timer on my previous terrarium I can use with this)
3) Hygrometer + Thermometer;
Zoo Med Economy Analog Dual Thermometer and Humidity Gauge
4) Water/Sprinkler system;
Flower House SOL-K12 Solar RainMaker Automatic Watering System
So, before I go out and spend rather a lot of money on something that might not work, could anyone give me advice/tips/suggestions/help of any sort?
