Having a little dispute on windowsill vs terrariums. What do you guys think? Terrariums allow you to re-create exact habitat conditions for your plants. Of course, they will do better with the same climate as the one that they have thrived in for generation after generation. The person i was arguing with said that they do worse in their wild habitat because he has seen plants in the wild and they only have one active pitcher at a time. I followed that up by saying that in the wild there are other things that come into play besides climate like competition among other things, if there is no competition in your terrarium and the conditions are exactly as they are in their habitat, logically they will do better. He said "no thats not true". What do you guys think? (tony that means you!)
BTW: I'm talking about plants in general but i posted it in the nep forum because i think nepenthes are the most climate strict CP there are.
