Carniverous plant bowl

This small bowl houses Drosera capensis and Dionaea muscipula.  I’ve bought venus fly traps many times and never been able to keep them alive (they rot and turn brown after a few months) but this one seems to be doing well.  This bowl sits 5-6″ beneath a Sunlight Supply single tube LED for 13 hours a day.  I water them with distilled water every other day.  Sphagnum can be a weed in many scenarios, choking out smaller Bryophytes, Marcgravias, and ferns, and I usually remove it when I can, but it seemed appropriate here.
