    That humidity is ok the more the better with Nepenthes hamata. If it's not a small to medium sized plant it will do a small or larg plant you might want it in a bigger tank if it's like a seedling then it should do great. wide it should do good in the tank. Sure it's ok to keep it in your basement just keep the right growing requirements and you can grow it anywhere.

    Hope this helps

    You may want to check out some other threads here on the forum. True most hamata coming from wistuba require a good deal of care and high humidity initially as they are small and typically fresh out of TC. But a hamata, once established, doesn't necessarily need constant high humidity to grow. Some people here on the forum grow them as windowsill plants.

    The two I have grown received 50-60% humidity from the first day I got them, but they were a little bigger and hardened off by the previous growers.

    Why would you need a heater during the day? As long as you can provide a significant nighttime drop in temperature, as well as ample light, you shouldn't have a problem The humidity levels you have sound fine to me, BTW...
    <Heli> How are you guys losing your hamatas?
