    WOW nice tanka trics!!!!

    How about trying to grow some species in a bowl of clear glass marbles? I never did it but think it would be interesting as the marbles might magnify the traps. Got the idea from Tim Malcom.

    Thanks for the input guys. I'm going to be growing some nephrophylla or tricolor on a rock wall in a new vampire crab tank. The depressions and spaces inbetween the fake rock will be smeared with my mud (kitty litter & peat) and soaked daily so there is a wet area for the utric and mosses, liverworts and stuff to get going on.


    I have a big U. longifolia in a fishbowl of LFS that I copied from Av8tor. Works nicely but where there is light there are leaves as well as roots, not sure if marbles would make the whole soil lit up and there wouldn't be many traps but mostly leaves. If you made paper sheath to wrap the bowl perhaps it would keep the sides dark enough for just traps and not leaves.
