    Darlingtonia wouldn't fry. I would only grow highlanders in those conditions, you could probably grow some non-picky lowlanders though (truncata, rafflesiana, alata (lowland), albomarginata).

    About humidity, my greenhouse gets to around 40-50% during the day (even in winter, yes, i need a better swamp cooler), but as long as the humidity skyrockets at night (to 70%+) all of my Nepenthes do very well. I have just got a few picky highlanders (Macrophylla, thanks Tony, and Lowii) i haven't experienced any negative effects yet, and they seem to be adjusting well in my conditions. So i'm assuming that most Nepenthes (highlander at least) would do well in yours.

    If I get the temps higher at night and in the winter, can I grow lowlands?

    Yes but then you will have problems with your highland types. Or perhaps I should rephrase that to 'more problems'



    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
