Hi ! I present you today my lowland terrarium. I hope you are not afraid by warm temperatures and humidity ! ;)
 

The tank.

Same view, when the fogger is working.

Inside. The jungle is sleeping under the fog...

All is growing in all directions !

Nepenthes gracilis, which begins to climb so I use a tantalum wire to maintain it.

A young Nepenthes albomarginata "green", which begins to make me new leaves and pitchers after a long acclimatization.

Nepenthes kampotiana, detail. This one grows quickly. But at this moment it's slower.

Last pitcher of Nepenthes "ventrinermis". I think it's the faster grower I have, after my Codariocalyx motorius.

Nepenthes tentaculata which is in acclimatization. For the moment, all is fine.

A big Heliamphora heterodoxa x nutans. I have it since more of one year. It already flowered.

What can we see behind the foliage ? Is it a Nepenthes ventricosa ? Yes of course.

This Nepenthes northiana is hiding. Sorry, I don't succeed to do better. The plant is really inaccessible.

A young Nepenthes andamana, beside a small Drosera prolifera. I've obtained this Nepenthes from Marcello Catalano, an italien naturalist present on this forum... And who has discovered and described this specie if my memorie is good. Nice, no ?

Several Drosera schizandra.

My Codariocalyx motorius. A very fast grower !

And one of my favorite Nepenthes adnata.

Thank you Tony, effectively there are many plants inside.

And don't worry, I still have space. With your N. rafflesiana, I will receive three other plants.

I'm sure this jungle will be really interesting in several years... And if the plants become too much big, I'll make cuttings !

N. adnata, I love the contrast between the inside (white) and the outside (black).

N. gracilis. Could it be a N. gracilis "nigrapurpurea" ?

Woah! Very nice plants!! So you can grow all these different highlanders and lowlanders together? :-)

Thank you very much. :)

Yes I try to keep highland and lowland species together. Until now, I observed that N. sibuyanensis and N. adnata (even if they are not strict highlanders) like my lowland conditions. At contrary, N. tenuis doesn't appreciate it and N. tentaculata is pretty picky. Concerning hybrids, there is absolutely no problem. I cultivate N. ventricosa x inermis and N. ventricosa x ephippiata with success.

Salut!

 

I'm just wondering what substrate you are using for your lowland plants?

 

Cheers
