    I mean letting the actual leaves/pitchers/crown get wet. Some people are afraid of letting it get wet, and only tray water, or carefully water around the plant itself, but I haven't found it to be a problem. Now that I can water around the plant, I do most of the time aside from when I'm soaking the root as with a top water over the whole pot, but for the past few years, it had been covering the entire top of the tiny pot it was in, so I just watered it over the pitchers and everything.

    As for moisture levels, it doesn't seem to be very picky as long as it isn't left waterlogged or allowed to dry to the point of the pitchers wilting and getting soft. I throughly spray the surrounding sphagnum daily sometimes more, whenever I visit my plants, and that keeps it watered pretty well these days. I'll probably need to up the frequency on the top watering soaks when the temps rise this summer, though.

    You're quite lucky to have those plants. Do you use artificial lighting in winter? If so, what kind of lighting?

    I live in NY, so I grow all of my carnivorous plants indoors. I use T5 high output bulbs. A mix between 3000k and 6500k.

    Thanks for the help. Especially with the light temp, since I don't really have room for big T5's.
