    jlui83, I would add that you should make any changes gradually. The leaves on a plant that has been grown under lights and high humidity may not be able to handle a drop in humidity plus getting direct sun. It's comparable to celebrating the first warm day of spring by lying in the sun all day without sunscreen. You get burned bad.

    Hi,
    I have a questions about Darlingtonia, Venus Flytrap, sundew and I am want to by
    more to extend my collection.I am trying to tackle the humidity issue here in Kansas. It is very high but the sun is bright and hot.
    I used to collect them a number of years ago
    . I bought some a week ago, I have them in
    a little plastic domes they came in. I know it takes they need humidity but I am confused what to
    about the lighting. Some people say east or west end not south, or south near window sill
    in a terrarium not covered.
    What is the best way to care for them this way.I would like to put them all in
    a terrarium but I first want to get the lighting right before I put them in a terrairum.
    I want them to get some sun and humidity. One place said to
    take off the plastic dome and put them into the sun (south side). I am thinking of getting
    some artificial light as well.
    Any help appreciated. Please also reply to email below if you can . below
    I am new to this list and it is great resource.

    Not trying to be rude or anything but you don't need to post the same message MULTIPLE times in this forum. Just make a new thread with your own topic.

    I'm not trying to confuse you, but don't go through one extreme to another; your plants will acclimate to one; only to be shocked with the other. I did that and my VFT'S didn't like it one bit, the leaves burnt brown on the edges and wilted, when I went from humid to not so humid.

    VFT'S are very adaptable in the humidiy aspect, but do one or the other and stick with it.

    If it were me, I'd leave the top open; that would be PLENTY humid enough; remember, more problems occur with too much humidity; fungus, rot, etc.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yep, varitations like that won't hurt a bit; but if you go; say a solid month with a constant, and then a solid month with an extreme something else; like what would happen in this case; then that would not be beneficial; at all.
