    which should be getting higher humidity?

    The humidity around the water tray isn't what I was hoping. currently looking at 69f/37%rh where the pots are. I do have a spare 5g tank that you can see just to the right of the plants...should I place some of these in there?

    37% sounds good to me, at least if you're not growing any Neps, which you only seem to have one of if that is one in the lower left. Even so, with some adjusting, it should be ok. I'd suggest another fixture, as well.

    For the most part, there should be enough "local" humidtityfor them. Neps and Petiolaris Complex sundews would like more humidity. The setup is just fine without trying to up the humidity. Then you'd have to be dealing with mold.

    well, not to "overrule" your advice, high humdity is fine if you vent it everyonce and awhile or have a fan, etc..

    with a handful of exceptions you generally run into more problems with to much humidity than not enough..............a couple winters ago my house was dry enough that i was having sinus problems and had bloddy noses regularly.............my plants did just fine in open trays(my Neps were in a humidity tent except for one Ventrata that was pitchering happily in the 15-20% humidity)
