    Yes, it's usually pretty dry here. We have some misters outside. Would that help with the humidity issue? I will be moving them outside this weekend.

    Mineral build up may be a problem if the misters are using tap or grey water. If the water is filtered by Reverse Osmosis or your tap water has very low Total Dissolved Solids (<=50ppm) it should be no problem.

    I hadn't thought of that with the misters. I am watering the CPs now with distilled water.

    upper, some of my plants have live sphagnum moss on top (they came packaged that way).... should all the plants have that? Would it help them overall?

    Also check for aphids, that looks like some sort of pest damage if you ask me. Aphids would appear as little white crawling things... you'd probably know if you had them. If you find out you have one or more pests, submerging the plant completely (pot and all) for a day or two works well to get rid of them.

    i had the same problem w/ the cape i was growing it without enough light. it might have been a pest issue, but a week after i put mine outside in full sun w/the other dews in my shallow pool it started producing normal leaves again. the bugs aren't there anymore either though, so it could have been a combo. but i definitely think the main issue is giving the cape enough light.
