Hi, my name is Andy Rose and I am from Manchester,
England and have just joined the group.

I have been growing carnivorous plants for the past 4
years. My special interest is Nepenthes. I have
recently tried to set-up a terrarium (home made) for my
nepenthes but I am
not having too much success, most are failing to grow successfully.
The dimensions of the terrarium are 36" x 24" x 24", lit
by an 18" growlux tube in the wooden top and heated to
approx. 75F.

Can anybody out there advise what the problem is and
what I can do to make it more successful.

Looking forward to receiving some advice.
