    not enough information..

    what conditions were the plants in before?
    light
    humidity
    temperature.

    and what will the new conditions be on the windowsill?

    what kind of plants?

    tropical utrics, neps, dews,genlisea, and baby plants;before: 70 farenhiegt ; 90% humidity; 16 hours strong cfl;now: 60-70 farenhiegt; 10 hours of light natural; 80-90% humidity; need to be used to these new conditions for winter and fall. For summer and spring it will be like the terrarium but natural. also can lowland neps grow like that?

    again. it depends on which neps, dews ect. a ventrata will be happy but a rajah wont. and a capensis will be happy but a graminifolia wont.

    those conditions sounds basically identical to me..
    no major differences at all.

    temp and humidity is essentially the same.

    duration of light is less in the window (10 hours compared to 16 hours)
    but sunlight is much brighter than artificial lights,
    so overall amount of light is probably the same.


    I wouldnt worry about it..
    the plants will probably adapt fine.

    the only "iffy" plants would be the lowland neps..
    they probably wouldnt be happy in the winter on a windowsill..
    too dark, too dry and too cool..

    everything else should be fine.
