    I saw that there was an old picture thread, but why not start a new thread just for terrariums? Exactly. So I'll start:

    My terrarium

    View of left side


    View of right side


    My Water Sundew-A cricket is all wrapped up in that leaf!


    My Northern Dewthread


    My Lance-Leaf Sundew-Another cricket, down the drain!


    My Cape Sundew-At this point, you almost feel bad for the little guys. Hahahaha!


    And finally, one of my Venus Flytraps-That little guy never had a chance...


    Hope you all enjoy!

    Nice pictures. We would all appreciate it if you resized them though... and many here on the forums aren't blessed with a cable modem, so it would take them an hour or more to load all the pictures you just posted. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    That's a 5-gallon terrarium?! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] It looks larger than my 10-gallon.

    Here's mine:

    Hahaha, yes it's a 5 gallon. I swear! Perhaps it's because my pots are smaller so I can fit more in?

    Your plants are beautiful! I especially like your Venus Flytrap. It's huge! Is that just one plant or several? Also, how old is that plant?

    Your last picture isn't showing up. I want to see it!

    [EDIT] Now it's showing up. Very cool! Now why do you need that cup for those plants?

    Sorry about that last picture. I accidentally uploaded the entire 2048x1536 image, so I removed it until I could fix the problem (I imagine that would have really ticked people off!).

    I got so distracted by the size of your tank that I forgot to comment on the plants. They look very clean and healthy. I especially like the look of the water sundew; it looks like you have three plants in that pot. Also, your sphagnum moss looks to be in really good condition, much better than mine. How long have you had it in those pots?

    I have had the VFT for two years, and it has increased in size a lot since I bought it. It was my first CP that I really put a lot of effort and research into keeping alive. Naturally, once I had all the equipment, I decided to buy more plants. In any case, it is actually larger in the summer than it is now. This is probably the smallest its been in a while. As best I can tell, it is a clump of 6 or more plants by now.

    The cup is for bladderworts (in this case Utricularia sandersonii), I got the idea from elgecko in
    this thread. It allows you to see the bladders which are normally underground. In my case, it has been the only growing medium that seems to be allowing my U. sandersonii do well, maybe because it is almost constantly flooded.

    U. sandersonii is not flowering right now since I recently moved it and it is still recovering.

    Thanks for the compliments!

    I do have three Water Sundews in that pot. Guess I just got lucky when I bought it!

    As for my moss, it's the same moss that was in my pots when I bought all my plants. So it has been in those containers for maybe three weeks now.
