It's time to wake up your VFT's. Bring them in the house get them warm, water them and place them outside on Sunny days. Temps in the day are in the mid to upper 40's and it will get warmer. Bring them in at night until temps are no lower then the 40's. Good luck, any questions contact me.

You might need to supplement humidity in Southern CA. VFT might be ok because they are so low growing, the medium might produce enough humidity for them. Unless it's a windy day. Sarracenia are going to have some real problems though. If you see tall pitchered plants getting crispy dried spots on the edges of their pitchers, low humidity. Easy way to test this, during the summer do you often get static shocks from other people and/or doorknobs? If this only happens a lot in the winter, then the summers have good humidity.

We get real staticky during fall then the rest of the year is fine. I just bought this cheap green house and it's under my back porch and gets direct morning light and indirect light all day. So it should be a lot easier to keep humidity. As of now the only plants I have are Nepenthes(3), Sundew(3) and some seeds I just planted, Venus Fly Trap(1) and they are in pots. And tomorrow I'm going to order some others! Thanks for the help:)
