    whats in it?
    where's it going to be placed? inside or outside?

    how big is it?

    is there any airflow other than that?

    Post a pic. OR Animal mineral or vegetable? Is it beaver eyes? I think you may be talking about a clear lid for 1'x2' nursery trays...

    i thought for sure it was going to be beaver eyes...


    anyways,

    yeah definitely open those top vents... also keep track of how hot its getting in there... sunlight + clear coverings... = baking your cp's to a crisp

    You probably don't need the dome at all for your Carnivorous Plants, but I would open the vents.

    Unless you get a bare minimum of 4 hours of direct sunlight a day in winter the windowsill is probably does not have enough light for your CPs.

    If the plants are getting direct sunlight on the windowsill there is the danger of them overheating and "cooking" under the dome.
