    I don't know what high humidity will do to your sundews since I don't grow them so I don't want you to slaughter your Dew collection. I don't have any Neps in low humidity so I can't say which ones will pitcher in 60% RH and which won't.

    N. campanulata may do fine in lower humidity, just keep an eye on it and if things don't seem to be working out, no pitchers after a good stretch of time (say 2-3 months/leaves), browning leaves, etc. Then look at starting to increase the humidity. If you're dead set on Neps and Dews you might need to set up a seperate smaller terrarium just for this guy so he can have all the things that'll make him happy. Since this one is a smaller species it should be a very easy one to keep "forever" in a simple 10 gallon aquarium with a 20 watt daylight power compact light.

    i guess i'll try things out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    i dont see WHY high humidity would be bad for drosera anyway, but whatever, mother nature is weird sometimes.

    i've decided to keep my humidity in the low 70's, that way, hopefully, everyone can be happy.

    I grow D. adelae and schizandra in a nep tank (which also has n. campanulata growing happily in it - mine took a few months to settle in and start producing good sized pitchers) at high humidity, reasonable light and temps 70-95C. They seem happy enough.

    Yep they are nice and dewy in there! More so than when they were in the open greenhouse.

    That little, and flowering? My camp is larger than that....so I would guess it's mature (how do you know, anyway, besides seeing a flower?). I guess I'm going to have to try to get my light times to simulate season change if I ever want to see a flower....Oh, boy....
