    How rude. He's trying to help you, and then you say that, especially without a smiley or anything to make it look like a joke?

    your plants will do fine in low humidity
    the only plants you would have to even remotely worry about would be some neps

    yes, Kristoff's post isnt really relevant to your question..
    he is choosing to grow his plants in terrarums..but its certainly not necessary, (in fact, many people consider it detrimental) and you certainly dont need humidity that high.

    BUT! you asked about "vft, cape sundew, and bare root Sarracenia"
    but the photo you posted shows none of those..
    it looks like the plant in your photo is a Nepenthes..
    could you take another photo with the cover removed?
    im pretty sure its a teeny Nepenthes..
    thats a whole other story..
    Neps DO need higher humidity, and do NOT need a winter dormancy..
    and they do much better in terrariums than VFTs or Sarracenia..

    many people make the mistake the Nepenthes, VFTs and Sarracenia all like the same conditions, because they are all "carnivorous plants"

    not true.

    Nepenthes are tropical..VFTs and Sarrs are not..they need VERY different conditions at different times of year.

    VFTs and Sarracenia are best grown outdoors, they need a spring, summer, autumn and winter, with different light and temps in each of the 4 seasons, and need a winter dormancy..
    for that reason they are best grown outdoors and not in terrariums..

    Nepenthes are very different.
    they are tropical, they like it warm and humid pretty much every day of they year.
    they are from a totally different part of the world.
    Neps from SE Asia.
    VFTs and Sarrs from SE USA.

    So if that is a Nepenthes, and you also have VFTs and Sarrs, they will need different care.

    Humidity is overrated. Terrariums are unnecessary. Any of those tissue cultured sarrs and vfts I've ever gotten I've just popped the top off with no ill-effect.

    That's exactly what I was thinking...

    yep..me too.
    I dont bother much with "acclimating slowly"..
    the plants always do fine..

    just stick them outside in the bright light and they do great.
    (VFTs and Sarrs..not Neps)
