    Terraria cultivation of CP's, in general, require some sophistication and balance between humidity and circulation. They may look more attractive / aesthetic, but have more variables. Humidity is over-rated, relative to adequate circulation and lighting.

    Humidity isn't important to most of the Pinguicula you will be able to grow, Windplant. The humidity in your home sounds OK for most carnivorous plants. It does sound kind of cold - is 56-60f your winter temperatures or is that the climate in all seasons? In any case, 56-60f isn't too cold for most Pings, even if it is a little cold for people. You should reserve the space in your terrarium for things that need the heat and humidity, like Nepenthes, and just keep your Pings under a light. Growing Pings in a terrarium will just make things harder.

    ImWindPlant, Jimscott and seedjar pretty well covered it. Don't worry about your temps and humidity for your pings. I grow mine on a window sill. The temps are between 65f and 74F during the winter and the humidity right now is all the way uo to 41%. It's usually about 36%. My mexican pings don't mind it at all.
