Yesterday it was 85F in the greenhouse with the door open and the swamp cooler on high. 60% humidity. Closed the door, and within 15 minutes it was down to 80F and 70% humidity, which will be much more manageable for everything I'm keeping I suppose. Today it's supposed to be over 90F, so I'll see how it goes. Hopefully it will keep it around 85F, that would be perfect.

How'd it go?
I left the swamp cooler in the off position so it couldn't come on today. 90F inside the greenhouse lol. Ultrahighlanders are all good. The boschiana x mira that was having issues... That one pitcher... It turned black (it was like two months old), but the other pitcher it has kept its lid held high with no wilting through to 90F day. Since I had the door closed, it was 50% humidity in there, so that may have helped. My vogelii stopped wilting too. It happened when I made the day humidity about 60-70% and 90% at night...
Thank you so much to everyone who helped me out with this problem! Especially Tony! Cutting the hole in the back of that panel was probably the easiest thing I could have done and it works so well!
Glad to hear things are improving. Each greenhouse situation often requires it's own bit of tinkering because there are so many factors involved which can affect the environment within the greenhouse. No setup is exactly the same for different individuals.
Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
