    thanks! klossii is is out of the list because it's so expensive... any ideas for which carnivorous plants could grow nicely in a terrarium besides the nepenthes species I will choose? and how do plants grow in a terrarium? you just put perlite, orchid soil and moss and than plant your nepenthes and other plants there?

    When growing in a terrarium, it's best to do a potted terrarium style, where the plants are in pots rather than filling the terrarium with media and planting them into that. Its much harder to control moisture and preform maintenance that way. Most subtropical drosera and utricularia will be easily grown alongside nepenthes.

    thanks! I have more questions, if you don't mind, I'm just a beginner
    which sizes of terrarium will be enough for the biggest species I mentioned and can grow here?
    can heliamphora and dionaea grow alongside with these nepenthes species?
    do you have more (basic and special) advice for how to grow at least some of the nepenthes species mentioned above? thank you very much.

    A terrarium won't be large enough in the long term. All of the species you've chosen will get to be at least a couple feet across and all neps eventually form long stems. Heliamphora can be grown alongside but they are both more sensitive to temperature and humidity. Dionea cannot be grown next to nepenthes. They require more light and go dormant in the winter.

    I know that clipeata won't start climbing. is it still too large for a terrarium? and and when you mean the long term- which species- of which I mentioned- are the slowest growers, and how much time would take for them to be too large for a terrarium?

    You'd have to ask and see if they have the necessary paperwork to mail abroad. Nepenthes will require a phytosanitary certificate and CITES papers, possibly more depending on your country. Some people will send plants without those papers but this can result in legal trouble for you if the shipment is intercepted. I would stick to actual nurseries for international shipping.

    you're right. I don't want to get into trouble, or get a dead plant for such a high price.
