    The best thing for Droseras is to keep them well-lighted, with about and inch or so of water in an open tray environment, (uncovered).

    This is what I'm talking about!

    As long as your room doesn't get to -10 C and 35 C they should be fine at a window sill. Mine are in a building next to the main lab and the get a range from 60's to low 90's.

    Humidity is over-rated. People understand that CP's grow in warm, humid areas and they try to re-create that in terrariums. Unfortunately, a terrarium end up being a closed environment and it leads to more humidity, without the air circulation, thus producing mold. An open tray set up, even amid air conditioners, gives the plant enough "local" humidity, without leading to mold.
