    Update of my 24L x 12D x 18H terrarium...
    So far so good, I have had great luck with nepenthes, parrot pitchers and sundews. The one plant I have had the most trouble with is my Australian pitcher plants, the pitchers turn yellow and die off shortly after opening and I cant figure out why. Tomorrow I upgrade my light from T12s to over driven T8s and in two weeks Im getting a fogger for humidity. So I hope that helps.....

    Here Are A Few Shots From My Webcam (only camera I have right now)

    Upgraded the light today from T12s, to over driven T8s. The new bulbs are 4100K 24" Sylvania T8s. I plan to switch to blue/purple Hagen Aqua-Glo bulbs in a couple weeks for better color spectrum....
    Everything Is Glowing Radio Active Green....

    Fingers Crossed In Hopes Of Good Reaction!!!

    Hello.... I was doing some reading.... Maybe my Australian pitcher plants are just doing there cold season thing? I have been running cold season on my tank, cooler temps and 12 hours of light.... I think now that I am moving into summer they should grow bigger pitchers? I started with three plants and now there are seven, so the roots are good I'd say.... I added stronger light with more hours and the temps in my apartment are going up little by little as winter fades.... They have more non-carnivorous leaves now and I read that's what they do in the spring.... Fingers Crossed My Terrarium Has A Growth Spurt This Summer :)

    I Love The Color Of The Aqua-Glo But Only Them Alone Is Too Dim... Something To Do With The Color.... With One Cheep Sylvania 4100k And One Hagen Aqua Glo I Get A Nice Bright White Color Light, I Still Get The Benefits Of The Blue And Red From The Aqua Glo And The Brightness Of The Sylvania 4100k....
