    its in an open tray in a greenhouse sorta thing in my basement which is why the humidity is lower than alot of ppls setups.....for me a terrarium in general CP growing is for hardening off small plants.....my alpina is in a bare bottom tray that my larger neps sit in.......add water when the tray bottom feels dry.....

    one thing i think has helped my growing of these types of Utrics and others have told me they copied the technique and had success is that i use pots that allow air in the sides and the plants to grow out the sides of the pot if they want....

    with this alpina its a pot made out of coir as i picked up a some of these pots awhile back.....they work fine but deteriorate in the wetter enviro faster than i would like and dont plan to continue their use in the future....

    in the past and what others have told me they have copied is taking a normal, fairly tall, plastic pot and cut holes in the sidesto allow the air flow and the plant to grow out....net pots used to grow water lilies in ponds and such should work real well too....

    as to why i think this works, it allows the plant to choose the moisture level it is most happy with in your specific conditions, the higher up in the pot the drier the medium gets......in a wetter enviro it will prolly choose higher up in the pot, if drier farther down in the pot the media stays wetter.....

    for example endresii likes the top of the pots where alpina with its hardier growth basically pics all levels in my conditions.....

    but thats just my observations and thoughts....
