    D. schizandra 'Andromeda' not looking great

    Mike's Highland Terrarium

    My addiction has returned. After quitting CP's (and plants in general) a few years back to put more effort into my other hobby, fish tanks, I decided a few months back that I wanted to get back into CP's (nepenthes in particular) and I've slowly been rebuilding my collection since. The main...

    Seedling Nursery Project

    Hey all, I'll be editing and updating this post this evening as time permits. Recently, I have come into possession of an old 55 gallon aquarium that once housed a massive tetra colony. As I'm not really into fish, I was drunkenly staring at it, and thought, nursery terrarium! So In short...

    Unknown bog plant ID

    I use premium peat moss for years, never had something else growing in my pots but this year i have a lil plant growing in my peat. Probably a seed the company failed to remove from the peatmoss. Now all the pot is colonized. The leaves are not delicate, they are like plastic, quite hard to...

    Hi from California!

    New Member, Starting terrarium fairy garden with daughter to interest her in plants

    Only CP is a flytrap that I bought her. I have never been a fan of plants until my grandma passed and I inherited her houseplants...now I've got them everywhere. I like the biological side of plants. I like learning native habitat so that I can match in vitro habitat to the plant. My...

    What 2 Weeks Without Nighttime Cooling Does to Highlanders

    Or, what I like to respond when people ask, "How was your vacation?" These plants were kept in my highland terrarium for 2 weeks while I was away. Everything is automated except for watering - which I took care of before leaving - and nighttime cooling, which I do using ice packs. The night...

    Any harm in going 100% LFS (Maybe some live) for These Sundews:

    Im moving to a terrarium setup here in the next week because quite frankly my humidity inside my house is absolutely terrible. Probably something akin to a 20 gallon (Since I only have a 2 foot long light). (BTW Any tips on how high the light should be in a terrarium? right now they are about 8...

(Im thinking probably the APS and Terfus, or a Mix of either one of those with Sand). I actually prefer the look of it (based on what im seeing in other...
