    humidity question.

    i've heard from a couple of people that vft,cape sundew,and Sarracenia can adapt slowly to lower humidity. but some people say they cant. i just want to make sure.
    this is what i was planning.
    i was gonna put the vft, cape sundew, and bare root Sarracenia in this for humidity, then take alittle bit off everyday, until its completely off and then it should adapt to lower humidity,(i dont know why but it keeps changing here, yesterday it was 56% humidity, today its 23% and tomorrow is going to be 49%. so i just want to clarify. i'm in southern california, los angeles. i do not want to grow them indoor unless i have to.

    Vft and Sarracenia will do fine for you. Nepenthes might be able to handle the lower humidity, but not the temperatures you would be getting.

    flytraps and Sarracenia should be perfectly fine outside as well as the D. capensis.

    All of your plants will do fine with low humidity if you acclimate them to it. If they aren't used to it then you must gradually harden them off. All of my inside plants, sundews, bladderworts, Nepenthes etc all are extremely happy in ~10% humidity. Albeit they are beginners plants (the most "difficult" being N.eymae) they still are LIVING proof humidity isn't everything. Outside plants are just subject to the RH at for the given day and deal with it after adapting.

    Just take baby steps with them.
