    You need to understand that high heat in very high, stagnant humidity is possibly more lethal than the plant undergoing drought stress in high heat/low humidity. You're essentially depriving the plant of the ability to cool down with the high humidity and raising the internal temperatures higher than you would if there was free-flowing, drier air. You should google "leaf boundary layer" to learn a little more about it.

    Thanks for the explanation. Already moved it to a different place that's much cooler with same amount if sunlight. It's now around the 80's during the hottest time of the day. Am working on a terrarium. But i i may throw it outside with my other hl nepenthes first.
