    Humidity isn't as big a deal as one would think. For babies, like the TC hamatas, it is. All of my plants grow in 40-75% humidity. A few on my windowsill receive as low as 20% occasionally and are fine. Again, just remember when changing conditions, they must adjust slowly especially when small.

    I do not grow lowii, but if I did, I would be growing it in the same conditions as my other highlanders, that includes hamata. To me, a baby plant is any plant 3" or under. They will be bagged up and slowly acclimated by snipping the corner off. Plants over 3" are generally fine to acclimate on their own. Besides, your humidity is not that far off of ideal. My hamata I just received will be slowly acclimated via the bag method mainly because my humidity is less than ideal.

    Ventricosa does well on my balcony - so if you look up the temps for zip code 92103, that should give you a good idea. Truncata doesn't like the winter here but loves the summer, I just got a lowii so I don't know what it wants, and hamata loves it here year round like ventricosa too but like the humidity a touch higher in order to pitcher.

    This would be best asked in the flytrap forum. This could be caused by numerous factors. Over watering, under watering, pest problem, not enough light are the biggest four causes I can think of. Over watering causes the roots to rot essentially causing your plant to dehydrate and wilt the same as under watering. Pests can cause all sorts of problems. Malformed leaves being the biggest. Lack of light can also be a cause or distorted looking leaves. I still suggest to anyone, buy a good book on carnivorous plants. I recommend Peter D' Amato's Savage Garden. It is written with both experts and beginners in mind. You will find the majority of your answers in a good book. Good luck!
