    Do these plants do well in lower humidity? Right now I have both of them growing in pretty low humidity, between 20 and 30 percent. They still seem to be adjusting from shipping a while back (about a month ago) but they're growing pretty well. What I want to know is what kind of conditions you all grow these plants in.

    I have grown also a copelandii ibrid and it grows well under terrarium lights and high humidity and even in low humidity inside home and outside.
    Pratically this Nepenthes grows everywhere!
    I have this plant from 2 years but only recently with upper pitchers I realized that it was not a pure copelandii...

    Those two grow well for me outdoors here - meaning the humidity varies from the low teens to 50% during the day and 30% to 90% at night. They should do OK for you, but would do better if you could increase the humdity a bit and keep them out of the wind. A month is not long when adjusting plants to lower humidity.
    A day without Nepenthes is like a day without sunshine

    I'm loving this plant as well. I can't wait until is completely settles in to my conditions.
