    I've found from my own experience that standing water isn't enough to keep up humidity. Best thing to do is MIST MIST MIST!! Mist the entire inside of the enclosure (walls, ceiling, etc.) once in the morning, and once at night. That should do the trick. Your still going to want fans moving the air inside of the enclosure though.

    Ok, I figured I cut on flap in the bottom, one in the top, put fans in em and run them all day

    Get more plants - I hear that helps

    But yeah, what mass said. If you can't humidify, then mist. The air flow from one set of fans should be fine, too, as long as it doesn't stagnate. Good luck!

    I have had great results with the metal wire grow rack from lowes as well. In my experience however, it is completely unnecessary to fret over humidity for anything but Heliamphora and a select few Nepenthes (some lowland neps like bicalcarata and untra-highlanders like raja or villosa, etc). I live in Utah, with low humidity and my Neps are growing great, as long as they have the right temps and enough light. While I'm sure there are more extravagant ways of doing it, I just drape a white sheet over the rack to reflect more light back on the plants. Simple is best, I think.
