  1. We have hot summers and cold winters with frequent temp changes all year. I don't think it's possible to bring in outside air, there's not enough space around the windows to place the terrarium. 28 is the absolute max it gets when we overdo the heating and very rare. It's usually right around 25 in the wintertime and lower every other season.
  2. Hey everyone! I want to start experimenting with CPs that prefer a cooler environment (Heliamphora, epiphytic utris, nepenthes) I have a 40x25x25cm terrarium for them, so we're talking only a few plants. I've started looking into cooling solutions and immediately ruled out aquarium chillers, as they cost way too much and are hard to get in my area. I also don't want to take apart fridges and mess around with wiring, I have no experience and don't want a fire hazard in my room. I've found this video, which is the closest to what I want to accomplish, but this setup would be very loud and the tank is 2 meters from where I sleep. The temperature in my apartment is usually between 25-28C (77-82F). What would you recommend for my situation? Is it a bad idea to just insulate the tank and dump some ice below the pots before nighttime (and only allow air circulation during daytime)?
  3. Sure? Do they usually need more lighting than other Drosera? They are 45 cm-s away from This bulb with an 11 hour photoperiod. Most plants under it are red from all the light.
  4. I've had this plant for about half a year now, and it was doing fine, until I moved it inside. Now all the older leaves are dead, and new leaves are small and underdeveloped. Several other species of Drosera (filiformis & binata seedlings, pygmies, capensis) are thriving in the same terrarium. Any advice?
