    The best way would be to mount a ventilation fan near the top of the greenhouse that's controlled by a temperature sensor near whatever's temperature-critical. You might also want to put a cool-mist humidifier on the same circuit, which will both cool and humidify the greenhouse while the exhaust fan is pulling all the warm, wet air out.

    The size of the fan you'd need really would depend on the size of the greenhouse.

    If you're using computer fans for cooling, don't use CPU fans -- use the bigger ones that people use to exhaust the case itself.

    Actually, sarracenia can take great heat (to 125 degrees F.) As long as the humidity is 80 or 90 percent, they will grow like crazy, and the colors will be blinding. Can't speak for the drosera, or utrics, or pings, but sarracenia will love you for it.
