    I would think swamp coolers would raise humidity, while those that use a refrigerant passed through tubes would tend to lower the humidity.

    Thanks for your comments Maehem. I think I'd rather have the plants indoors. In past years I've tried some outside but I think the heat and dryness did them in after awhile. Inside I can control that at least, and during the summer I do have a couple of spots that get good bright light with some full sun, which I can filter if I need to.

    I also appreciate the comments about air conditioning. I have central air, but if the tray method and occasional misting will keep the humidity up, my dog won't have to suffer [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
    (Now I'm checking the humidity reading for my area whenever I log on [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    I've also re-read the plant care tips offered on pft and they have been very helpful. I just got two Nepenthes and discovered they don't like wet feet so immediately got them out of wet saucers.

    If I do things right this time maybe I'll make it to dormancy!

    Thanks Spectabilis73 -- I just discovered that from reading about dormancy from RamPuppy. I'm glad I don't have to worry about it with the neps -- sounds really scary. But I do have others that I think I'll have to deal with -- Cobras, a sarra, droseras, and a vft (will probably have more by then [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I guess I'll just cross that bridge when I come to it. Living in So. Cal. I don't think nature will do it for me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
