Another good terrarium plant is Utricularia calycifida
, it has been recommended as it has higher humidity requirements than other Utrics (although Utricularia sandersonii
is a fantastic starter Utric that has no dormancy requirements) and is quite simply beautiful. I had great success with it inside my terrarium before I turned it into a beetle habitat.
The plant now resides alongside my own U. sandersonii
in a clear glass cube on my windowsill. The leaves of the U. calycifida
that are above the surface of the soil are looking very sorry for themselves but I have new growth under the surface of the soil near the front of the glass where the soil is heated by the sun and they are thriving. The leaves are gorgeous, they are wide, green and have purple veining. The flowers are orchid-like.
If you're able to get ahold of one I'd highly recommend it.
