    use 2.5 gallon bags.. Put it in one, with a second bag over the top if need be. Not sure how big the plants are.. I've got some that won't even fit in a shopping bag.

    I dunno, the humidity where I used to grow my Neps (windowsill style) was really bad... sometimes no more than 30%. I never had any problems getting mine to pitcher or grow. I say experiment with a few expendable Neps first and see how they grow in the conditions you already have...... but that's just me.

    EDIT: In fact, when it's not raining in the winter, the humidity outside is really low, too. All of my Neps pitcher fine outside, whether the humidity was 30% or 60% due to rain out in full sun and "tough" conditions.

    My plants grow in really poor humidity and the only ones I ever had problems with in those conditions specifically because of humidity were hamata and glabrata. Glabrata I just gave away, but repotting to a wider pot with lots of lfs in the potting mixture for hamata bumped the humidity around the leaves and tendrils enough to ensure pitchering. I won't even think about rajah or talangensis because they'd have the same problem, but everything else is a breeze.

    what are you transplanting? Neps don't need a winter dormancy,.. so spring wouldn't make a difference.
    I only reuse everything except peat.
