    Wow, this is very encouraging! I'm growing the VFT under T5HO's so I'll remove the dome and circulate air with a fan. It's nice knowing that I can grow other CP's here with no added humidity.

    You do not need a humidity dome for venus fly traps. I don't know where the idea ever came from. I grow my dionaea and sarracenia in Phoenix, AZ in open pots under fluorescent lights and they grow quite well. It's currently 10% humidity here.

    You don't even need a fan!

    Ditch the dome and the fan.

    almost all cp's except nepenthes, heliamphora, cephalotus do absolutely fine with low humidity. They are not particular about humidity for the most part as plants like dews and flytraps are near the ground in bogs where the media is damp and provides a good microenvironment.

    I live in Nor. Cal., and though I currently grow all my plants in a greenhouse, at this point in the season I could even grow Highland Nepenthes outside without a problem (I live in a very humid area of Humboldt County). From what I've heard (and experienced), Northern California is one of the best places to grow carnivorous plants.

    The plants will do fine in low humidity. Just remember to let them adjust to it gradually or the leaves will get crisped from the sudden change.
