    How much airflow do I need for a lowland hybrid setup?

    I'm designing a custom setup for my Lady Luck nepenthes and I've got most of it figured out (light, heat, humidity) but I'm not sure how much ventilation I need to build in. It's going to be a fully automated setup with ventilation on the side controlled by a computer. I don't know if I need to put an actual fan on the side or if I can just have a hole that opens and closes. Does anyone else have a custom setup like this? What did you do for ventilation? Thanks guys!

    I have a lowland setup that's basically a sealed container next to a window that gets no ventilation, and haven't had any problems yet. I've had it for about a year and the plants have been doing great.

    Ok, cool. That's good to hear. What are you keeping the humidity at?

    Unless I'm taking a picture, there's always a lid on the container and there aren't any openings so I would say 90-100% humidity.
