    putting it in low light is not much of a problem considering that I plan on moving the terrarium away from the window and just decreasing the light period to like 8 hrs. But that is for next yr as the 3 VFTs growing now need no dormancy as they are fresh off TC.

    Those thermometr/hygrometers are cheap and don't last long. I've tried them. They didn't even last 3 months before they quit working. I now have a digital one that, so far, hasn't quit on me.

    No dew and pale coloring on your sundews is going to be from lack of good light, not humidity. I took mine out of a terrarium long ago and put them outside, and I guess I should take a pic because they look great! Red coloring and lots of dew on every leaf. I couldn't get that in a terrarium.

    Why do you have VFTs in a terrarium? Do you live somewhere where you can't put them outdoors? Do you give them a dormancy?

    Yeah...the problem is that I cannot put them outside. I live in a university residence where I have a window facing the north or south side which is not direct sun. Hence that is a problem as well.

    The terrarium is the only way to go.

    I realised and regretted my choice of getting those meters. They are soo cheaply made. But there is no point returning it as the shipping was 10$ but they were only 8.99 ...yeah lol! laugh all u want

    I guess i have to go with till however long they go.

    Those were only $8.95 at a local Petsmart.

    I picked up some of these:

    They are really small at 2 1/2" x 1/2" x 1 5/8" so they can be put just about anywhere. They have a little fold out stand and come with a bit of double-side foam tape or magnetic tape too. Min/Max function. The ones I have are set for Fahrenheit, you cannot switch scales (the only drawback with them).

    If you Google search for them you can find them for around $15 each.

    I have one of those little round ones for humidity that has worked fine for about 2 and a half years now.
