    Cali is dry, Vfts do fine out here. That's why you water plants. Humidity is only needed by nepenthes, cephs, helis and stuff.

    Meh...I guess I'll accustom it to the Sonora Desert then. But wouldn't they still need at least a good amount of humidity to keep them from baking under the AZ sun? Phoenix is definitely hotter than any other place in the country, other than Death Valley and a few western cities in AZ(Bullhead City, Yuma, Lake Havasu City). Andy said he grew his in pretty humid environments(in his greenhouse; in windows near swampcoolers) that did get quite warm, so I'll probably give it a try...when I get more than one VFT. Once I propagate the plant via leaf/stalk cuttings, I'll feel less anxious about letting them grow outside.

    The thing you have to worry about is making sure the soil they are in does not cook them. Or that it does not dry out.

    That's not really bothering me. I have pretty deep water trays that'll keep the plant nicely hydrated. I use refrigerated water so that the soil stays cool enough that it doesn't cook the roots.
