I wrote a post yesterday about my new Spatulatas whose color seemed a bit washed out to me. (They were brought into my house from a very humid greenhouse, so I'm assuming they have some stress from acclimation. Also I used "Safer end all insect killer" on them to kill a bunch of aphids. I promptly flushed the spatulatas with distlled water and have been doing so for the past 3 days, as well as repotting them into new mix and flushing that.)
attached are pics of the Spatulatas. I repotted them into new soil without the moss growing in top, so maybe the view of them is better. Can someone tell me if they look alright along with my capensis and adelae sundews? I believe the capensis alba and adelae are doing ok. The capensis alba came from a greenhouse that treated it like a cactus, and when they did water it it was with a garden hose. The adelae has new green growth, so im assuming the brown edges were just from transplanting them and taking them home.
My main quetion is if the set up they are in now is ok? I have moved all three into this terrarium this morning in order to increase the humidity around them to speed up their recovery. I'm hoping this set up is ok because I was worried about the temperature inside getting too hot. I left a bit of a gap in the saranwrap on the top for some heat-escape/ventilation purposes.
I can increase light if necessary by taking them outside, although it may be possible for temps to get into the 50s at night. Would they Adelae and capensis be ok with this?
Also, how long of a wait is expected until they start producing dew again?
