Sorry I can't give you names for others but you should put a couple droseras in there, maybe binata, or spatulata or another tropical/subtropica sundew.

Mmmmmm, maybe a Drosera capensis, a pinguicula weser, or moranensis. and judging by the picture, you may need more soil than that, I could be wrong so correct me please.

1) You should turn it into a poll to track the results more accurately, and

2) Can you add a capensis vote for me :)?

P. Weser is a Mexican Pinguicula and I don't know how terrarium life would affect it, if I'm honest. They tend to originate from desert climates. Also, because of where they originate from, they have different dormancy habits to Dionaea and some Drosera which could create extra work for you.

As far as I know P. Moranensis is also a Mexican species.

Most Pings are very prone to root rot so I don't know if mixing it with plants from a more humid, "watery" location is a good idea, simply because of the amount of condensation and excess water that could build up -- especially in an undrained container.

I could,put them in a seperate section (separated by plastic) to the others to keep them with a different water amount

If you placed them in the terrarium with a seperate water dish, that might be best. You can always wait until another Pinguicula grower responds and see what they think, though. I'll admit I'm no professional, but I love my Pings =]
