Default Mini Drosera Garden

This is what I have been doing the whole afternoon. Most probably I need to add more lighting for them to do well. Here's the species in the garden:

- D. adelae
- D. paradoxa
- D. hartmeyerorum
- D. filiformis (red)
- D. burmanii
- U. graminflolia

I think it'll look better when the utric cover the entire garden. At the moment have to use the black dirty looking sphagnum peat as the topping so that the utric will grow.

Fantastic David! I saw a thread somewhere (else) where we started discussing creating mini-environments/ecosystems. I was discussing with someone how this was really my favorite way of seeing Cp's and ferns. Your setup is really tastefully done and has a great composition! And the seamless terrarium really adds some class as well. Great job, please keep posting as it fills in!
I tell ya, you guys are going to convince me yet about indoor light setups!

...by the way...the plants all look great too!

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. Forgot to mention that I have D. spatulata in there too. After looking at it the rest of the day, I decided to remove one filiformis plant from the mini garden and add U. graminflolia, U. tricolor and U. involvens.

Well done, David! Nice setup, I like it. Now I am thinking of a terrarium, but not enough money......

Cheers
