Subject: HELP! Plants for a terrarium with fountain (second post)

Since I got absolutely no response from the first post, I will post this


Hi, I am going to be putting together a carniverous plant terrarium in the
near future, complete with fountain fed with distilled water.. It will
also have both a flourescent and grobulb shining into it..I have a couple
questions to ask though:

1. What carniverous plants would be good for around the fountain and
perhaps in the fountain bowl <aquatics>.. the bowl will be small, so they'd
have to stay small.. I also am partial to pings.. would they work in there?

2. What soil should I use? Should I place a layer of rock at the bottom
to help with drainage and a peat/sand/perlite mix on top of that?

Thanks for all your help :)
