    True, terrariums CAN be stagnant, humid, full of mold. But this is not the case with terrariums that have actually had some thought put into them. If you leave the top off, or leave it open an inch or two along a whole edge, with proper lighting, the plants tend to not notice the difference. I grew a VFT in one of my terrariums for a while, but now I grow it outside for space purposes.

    I grow my VFTs outside as well, and they seem to love it, even though I do not have much humidity in my area. I think nature does a better job caring for them then I would do in a terrarium. But for people who are not as lucky as we are, and can't grow them outdoors, or want to be able to have them close at hand inside, I'm sure a well managed terrarium makes for some awesome VFTs.

    Nice plants xscd (I'm going to look for that clone after I post this) and alexis.

    Me too!

    Anyhoo, there are good terrarium setups and there are those that are deathtraps. The Lowes cube of death is an extreme case. My question is if a terrarium, with artificial lighting, providing seemingly adequate lighting, especially the first year or two, but over time, do the plants deteriorate?

    I just planted a bunch of vft's at the edge of the lake about a week ago. Typical, Bigmouth, Dente, and Red dragon. I planted some D. filiformis, too. They are doing GREAT! Everything does better for me on the lake than on the deck. Soil is mucky and nothing like peat, but they love it! They are at least twice as red as when I had them.
