The Carnivorous Sundew Terrarium


It's finally time for another terrarium build! In this one I'm making the highly requested sundew terrarium. This one is similar to the venus flytrap in ways and different in others. Regardless the end result is a simple and elegant terrarium that showcases the sundew (Drosera tokaiensis).

As I explained in the video, sundew will thrive in inert substrate free of minerals with bright light and humidity. Also use water that doesn't' have any minerals. If you can provide these and a dormancy period for applicable species, then you should have success. If you want to make a terrarium for them, I'd recommend building it around the plant and think of everything else as a visual enhancement.

Again as I say with most things, if these and other carnivorous plants are something that interest you, do some research! There is a lot of information out there that I just can't touch on in a video like this.

Material List:
Black Lava Rock
Distilled Water
Geotextile Fabric
Glass Container
Substrate (Coco Fiber/Peat, Quarts Sand, Sphagnum Moss)

Plant List:
Acorus gramineus 'Minimus Aureus'
Drosera tokaiensis
Ficus pumila 'Quercifolia'
Marchantia polymorpha (Liverwort)
Saxifraga stolonifera (Strawberry Begonia)
Selaginella kraussiana 'Gold Tips'
Sphagnum Moss
Taxiphyllum 'Flame' (Flame Moss)
