    Increase Humidity

    Ok so i have my N. Red Dragon and have been keeping it in a East facing window for the last couple months... for a while it was doing fine but over the last month it has lost all of it's pitchers and is just growing leaves now .... so i moved it under my lights by my terrarium (since there is no room in the terrarium) and i need to find a way to increase humidity, because i heard that helps pitcher growth. So to get to the question does anyone have any ideas on how to increase the realative humidity around the Nepenthes? Any suggestions would help as long as they are not to far out there .

    Thanks in Advance

    Humidity doesn't matter too much, especially for a hybrid as resilient as red dragon. I've pitchered things in 15% humidity. If you really want to do it anyway, get a tray, put some rocks in it, pour in water (not all the way to the top of the rocks though) and set the pot on top of said rocks.

    Maybe your Red Dragon has not yet adapted to your environment.
    You can according to phissionkorps said the way of increment humidity,
    and observe a period of time.
    Perhaps it will start making pitcher.
