    Your Sang looks great.
    Although I'm not so sure that humidity has anything to do with the way the ventricosa looks, my two ventricosas are in great shape and their humidity is always low. I guess my lids don't last as long before they dry out though. Thanks for sharing.
    I should say something witty or remarkable but that would only prove my worth to society. To that I say meh!

    I'm always amazed by a nice looking N. ventricosa, I've grown all sorts of "difficult" Nepenthes species but somehow I've killed every form of N. ventricosa I've tried, Lowes store plants, gift cuttings, trades, nothing they all croak. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I've had them in warm humid LL conditions as yours are; dead, I've had them in cold humid HL conditions; dead.... I'm gonna probly give up on trying to grow N. ventricosa. LOL

    Well it might be a problem with the growing media? Mine are in 40% Orchids(coco fiber) mix and 60% Dead sphagnum moss. Make sure not to give them too much water, also (you probably did not but) DO NOT USE tap water, at chlorine and other minerals will kill the plant, use water Equivalent to Distilled water <=10 ppm RO (reverse osmosis) Also works great

    Humidity sure helps keeping the lids healthy longer, in Indonesia and Malaysia humidity levels are high, that's why i keep my level high
