I can thank Esox Lucius for this one
. I kept a couple of these in a small terrarium in a window, and they weren't doing too well, so I tried this instead. Here's what happens when you have lots of spare tanks, lights and plants sitting around, but dad won't allow more aquariums.
I've still got a bit of work to do on it. I need to find a plastic shoebox I can fill with water and set the pots in. These guys like lots and lots of humidity
Drosera sp. - all the original growth died off, but new leaves are coming in strong.
Dionaea muscipula - green variety
Dionaea muscipula - green and red
Darlingtonia californica "Cobra Lily"
That's all I've got at the moment. I'm actually trying to get away from some of the larger plants like Sarracenias and Darlingtonia. For some reason, I really like Flytraps and Sundews, so I'll probably end up with more of those pretty soon.
Anyway, tech specs:
Lighting: Coralife T5 2x14W fixture, 14 hrs/day
Substrate: Fertilome Spaghnum Peat Moss/Perlite, topped with dried Spaghnum. #1 rule of carnivorous plants is no nutrients in the soil!
They get all the nutrients they need from the bugs they eat, and their roots are super sensitive to minerals in the soil. For this reason, you only use DI/RO water too.
and I guess that's about it. What do you all think?
