    Humidity isn't always that nessecary with cps. 40-60% is just fine for a terrarium, and some people have grown cps on windowsills with just 15-20% humidity. EDIT: Whoops, I saw that you were growing highland neps in there. Never mind.

    You need airflow in your tank.

    I use a Tropicaire Humidifier & Air Exchanger to keep the humidity up and circulate the air.
    I have a 2" opening the complete length of my terrarium lid. My humidity does fall to the low 50% during the day and climbs back up at night to mid 70% range. I do not grow any neps in the terrarium though.
    What is your house humidity normally like? I have had success growing some neps as windowsill plants in lower humidity.

    Jimscott remarked about how "humidity was so overrated" and I must agree. I first placed a plastic clear Coke bottle around my plant in an attempt to preserve and encourage humidity but it could cause an "oven" problem or encourage mold.

    I took the lid off and just in a SINGLE DAY I see traps opening!

    True for VFTs and many of the CPs we grow Caro, but some Nepenthes, in this case highland (read mountain) Nepenthes are real picky about humidity.
