this might come up late as the plants are much more established now, but in future terrarium planning, it could help to make a slope, either from side to side or front to back. by doing this, you'd be able to keep an assortment of carnivorous plants happy: sarracenias like flooded conditions--would do better at the lower end, and flytraps on the mid to higher ends (because they don't appreciate PERMANENT waterlogged conditions)
