Hi Eric,

A natural way to solve this problem is to have high and low areas of your
mix in the tank.

Nurseries will have humidistats but many of them use a strand of horse hair
to measure the humidity. The instruments become inaccurate after a while.
I add charcoal to the bottom of the tank and some in the mix and keep an
inch or two layer of water. That and a small computer fan will gives high
humidity. I can tell because the Nepenthes always pitcher, that is, until
the leaves grow out of the tank.
