    the problem is the 4 sides of the tank kinda kill alot of air movement.....lack of air movement is not good for drosera....

    There's plenty of air movement. I have an industrial size fan going and you can see the flowers swaying in the breeze.
    I decided to go through and weed out my unsuccessful ceph leaf cuttings to make room for some dews. I was able to fit most of them in the ceph tank which has the 2 fans and 4 greenhouse lights. The dews I put in my ceph pot are doing really well, so I think the rest of them will do good too.

    I think some things may all depend on what species of drosera you plan to grow. Petiolaris complex and hybrids seem to thrive in high temps all the time and High humidity as well. My tank that I keep them in is regularly 90+F. OTOH, if temp was reduced by reducing light level, D. adelea seemed to do fine under normal output shoplight level lights and heat (although I am guessing it went up to the 80+ range also). D. sessiliflora also does well for me in the high light, high temp, high humidity setting. Maybe too well. It is jumping around pot to pot like a weed. D. intermedia 'Cuba' also is doing well same conditions. I don't run fans or worry about humidity, but it works for these species. I don't think it will work for all sundew species.

    with few exceptions(those mainly being the queensland 3 and petiolaris complex) most all non pest related problems are solved by more light and/or more air circulation provided you have them in decent soil and are being watered right.....
