Sadly it does not get sunlight it gets a lot of natural daylight from the window! I am supplying extra lightning.

Bought from them a Ping florian and it was ok, rather small actually but that was years ago maybe they have larger plants now. Thanks though I did look at their site yesterday pings are bit expensive too for all the ones I want (like 10 pings).

Bit of an aside here, I was just wondering if any of your Mexican Pings have reacted negatively to the hydroponic clay balls you're using? I've mixed some in to my soil and some of my Pings have decided to have a hissy fit over their leaves touching the balls and therefore die off. I rinsed them thoroughly but hadn't ever used them for Mexican Pings before.
I'd love to see the finished product when you've fully stocked it and things start to grow in. Looks fascinating. I'm sure if anyone can get Mexican Pings to work in a terrarium it's you.
Doing great here, still with carnivores, can't leave them! Have my personal collection a bog garden outside which I don't have to water at all! lol they are loving it, I will try and put pics up before autumn gets in the way!
I actually made the terrarium during the weekend and acquired all the plants you see in the terrarium yesterday so I have no idea how it will react to the clay balls :/ that's not good. Hopefully nothing will happen to mine. I am growing them in a mix of peat/silica sand/and the clay balls. Soil is very aery but in a terrarium! the lower part has water but only for the initial wetting of the soil and the pings will go in the upper portion of the terrarium so there is no standing water for them.
I hope they grow for me as well!!!
Thanks and how are you doing?

Thanks, already checked those! Just really looking to see if any members have some first before buying on the sites.
