    I would think swamp coolers would raise humidity, while those that use a refrigerant passed through tubes would tend to lower the humidity.

    Thanks for your comments Maehem. I think I'd rather have the plants indoors. In past years I've tried some outside but I think the heat and dryness did them in after awhile. Inside I can control that at least, and during the summer I do have a couple of spots that get good bright light with some full sun, which I can filter if I need to.

    I also appreciate the comments about air conditioning. I have central air, but if the tray method and occasional misting will keep the humidity up, my dog won't have to suffer
    (Now I'm checking the humidity reading for my area whenever I log on

    I've also re-read the plant care tips offered on pft and they have been very helpful. I just got two Nepenthes and discovered they don't like wet feet so immediately got them out of wet saucers.

    If I do things right this time maybe I'll make it to dormancy!

    Thanks Spectabilis73 -- I just discovered that from reading about dormancy from RamPuppy. I'm glad I don't have to worry about it with the neps -- sounds really scary. But I do have others that I think I'll have to deal with -- Cobras, a sarra, droseras, and a vft (will probably have more by then

    I guess I'll just cross that bridge when I come to it. Living in So. Cal. I don't think nature will do it for me
