Hello, I want show my terrariums for carnivorous plants. Now have 2 terrariums, one for highland and one for lowland plants. Sorry for English but for some cases I use google translator. Lowland: Terrarium ExoTerra, 4 pc fan with timer, light Blau Lumina T5 4x39W, Hagen Moonsoon RS400 for wattering and heat mat. Highland: This terrarium is build from polystyrene with 4 to 5 cm thickness. Into wall I created rock background from gunfoam and painted by epoxy for watter resistance. For watterinf usinf high presure pump with 10 jets and one pump in fountain. In back wall is a hole for fogger and senzors temperature/humidity. Light is same than into lowland terarium but it is longer and stronger. All this devices controls special device which turns on/off divices on the basis of the measured values. Last thing which want say is cooling. This was the strongest thing which I had to do on the highland terrarium. The principle is as follows. Using old fridge compressor with evaporate part. Compressor is hide in the cabinet. Evaporate part is in left side of terrarium. When temperature rises above 25°C, cooling system turns on and 2x 9cm pc fan turn on too. After temperature decreases belowe 15°C, cooling system turns off. And the last some nepenthes photos.

I’m looking into some LED grow lights for my Highland Nepenthes and my cool growing orchids that I keep with them. I’m trying find some info on what grow lights I need for them but cant find much, I will have the lights on a timer for the day time. Can you suggest what to look into and what are really good for the plants I want to grow? Thank you Michael
