An awesome highland chamber for nepenthes and heliamphoras! Correct?

Used to think of doing this two years back, but sadly no resources....is the humidity high in the fridge?

oh...that is a nice analog meter. it is definite that the rH is low in a fridge. the only time we sees water droplets is when we opens the door and condensation occurs....

H/L neps like daytime humidity of 70-80% and night time humidity of 100% (saturation). They grow best in these conditions. Are those some cute little VFTs I see?

Hopefully you can grow a villosa in there.
