Flowers; humidity

Several of my plants are currently beginning to flower. One venus fly-trap
began flowering and I cut the stem off (unfortunately, before I read the
post about using the cutting for new plantlets!). Then another flower bud
came up which I decided to leave on. My D. capensis is flowering and I know
it will set seed from past experience. For the first time my D. filiformis
tracyi is putting up a flower spike. Does this species self-fertilize?

I also now have a 400 W metal halide light fixture and 2 humidifiers in my
basement grow area. The humidity is 50-70%. But I have to add water to the
humidifier daily. Any help on different larger humidifiers or other ways to
increase humidity besides using ultra-sonics or evaporative humidifiers??
