    Is the domain name a "profane" word? The domain name is ****** which on this site indicates a word the forum's auto censor changed.

    High humidity is not necessary for a lot carnivorous plants. What genus are you referring to? Some do require higher humidity for optimal growth, but for some it is not a necessity.

    edit: the reason the webpage is blocked is because the website is shop that sells carnivorous plants, and those are blocked out.

    depends on variety and species with Neps.....ive gotten x Ventrata to pitcher in 15%......the veitchii grew fine in low humidity but refused to pitcher in anything under bout 60%....other species such as bical need high humidity to grow well.....

    Pings, high humidity not needed

    VFT's helpful but not required

    Sarr's not really, least for the hybrids i grew

    Drosera, some species yes, most no.........

    I noticed significant differences between Nep species during winter when the indoor air stays pretty dry. N veitchii, in particular, seems especially immune to low humidity, but my N maxima does pretty well. My Sarrs and VFTs stay outside and, in CT, only really know high humidity. Where & how do you plan to grow CPs? Knowing that might help people answer the question.

    By the way, humidity is a poor measure of the degree of evapotranspirative stress a plant faces. Coastal Alabama is considered a pretty humid place, but when the temperature hits the upper 90s on a breezy & sunny summer day, a Sarracenia is facing drying forces that are nearly as severe as if it were in Utah. But the AL plant will spend hours in 100% humidity the following morning and can recover for another day. Most plants do much of their photosynthesizing during the morning and shut down by mid-afternoon because of water stress, no matter where they are.
