They sit in trays with about 1/2 to 3/4" of rainwater. My soild mix is 50/50 Peat moss and perlite. They grow like weeds for me.

    Is the west window area air conditioned (lower humidity than just windows open)?

    I want some of that!!!!!!!! So that was grown in a house, not in anything special to keep humidity up? Was the house air conditioned, by chance?

    AC time is ending, though. The snow in a few months will help make my windows brighter, too, even if there is less daylight time.
    Most my plants are not grown in anything special. They are in front of a south facing sliding glass door in my kitchen.
    They get A/C in the summer and heat in the winter.
    My average humidity for my plants is around 35%. I have dews, Helis, Neps, Pings, Utric, you get the idea, under these conditions.

    Take a look at this:

    The first one I got( thanks mooo), was a couple days ago, and was messed up a bit from shipping. But after I put it on my window it was fine( as in making 3 new leaves and continueing its leaf from shipping). Humidity is about 20% and it gets up to 100's. Weird? :/

    NO A/C, that may be your problem if they are in a A/C'd room.

    Yeah, that's what I'm gettin' at. Outside is so breeze that the dew dries up and then it doesn't make anymore on those leaves, and then inside there's AC, so the humidity is way low and there's no dew.

    I have a question over here about the one plant's soil. You can see how sorry-lookin' my plant is.

    Through my experiences with D. adelae, they will die back, period. I have never had an established plant acclimatize to my conditions. I lose all growth. Be patient, they will come back from the roots. As far as my conditions go, I grow them inside under four 34-watt T12 bulbs. Humidity is normal household humidity, about 30-45%. They can also seem to take as much water as you can give them. Mine liked it better when I have it standing in water all the time.

    I have a few that I stuck outside about a week ago. The growth is struggling and will most likely die back. I have them shaded so they only get the early morning sun. Humidity is whatever the crazy NC weather will give them. Temps are in the 90's or warmer.

    Here's a bad picture of my indoor pot


    Just my two cents,
    Crystal
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?
