I just finished setting up a small new terrarium to house a single N. campanulata.  I thought I would post a picture of it here.  Like my large highland grow chamber this tank waters itself on a timer.

Use a cheap 10 pond pump, some flexible tubing and a cheap plug in timer set to run 15 minutes a day.

works for me

Can one get a big pump with a tube in, say a trash can full of RO water, and use a cheap timer for auto watering to water from several spouts?

Hi Joe,

In my large grow chamber I have exactly what you described set up.  A large pump pumps water into a pvc pipe and from that pipe 15 small hoses are available to be attached to pots.  Works like a charm.

I use the same sort of system for my Darlingtonia, accept I have it outside and the pump is running 24/7. It works great!

Matt,

How often do you change out the water in your terrarium? I'm thinking of rigging something like that up for a vacation I'm taking next week. (11 days)
