New video (the first unboxing I do on this channel):
I'm sure you know the online shops I've order from ;)

I really need a decent mic... the voice over isn't that great...
And filming when there is some clouds is's my best idea lol

And now I have a Facebook Page.

theres a layer of charcoal, then perlite, then long fibre sphagnum to keep humidity up
I use something similar for my live sphagnum moss and pinguicula that sits in a bowl. My layering is hydroton clay balls, a piece of shade cloth made out of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), charcoal, peat moss, then the dead and live sphagnum moss. For the pinguicula after the peat moss layer it's a mixture of akadama (red clay), pumice, and orchid bark.

Really nice!
I should maybe try the charcoal too...
I think it helps keep things fresh and makes sure that water collecting in the bottom doesnt go all gross and stagnant.
But i very well could be wrong.
I just know that every terrarium i put charcoal in stays healthy

No tray. The pots sit on the bottom. Some drain to the bottom and suck up water from the bottom of the pots. Some have pot-bottoms and get water from frequent spraying.
 
I grown 2 nepenthes alta for 2 years under grow light.The plants got to big to fit in the glass tank I put them in.I moved to window sill.Unfortunately the sill too small so i moved outside untill I move other plants.They got baked outside later.R.I.P Garry and Larry the pitcher plants.
