Hi jimmy,
You can try growing in a terrarium. FYI, air con actually take out the humidity, not increasing it.

if u use hanging pots,put a water tray around 2 times the size of the pot below the hanging pot and fill it with water and some pebbles.the pebbles should be porous i.e. scoria, so that they absorb the water and create humidity.

have a garden with more shades and moist...

some masters told me having soggy surface works...i.e. have your pot place on top of grass, moss or whatever that holds water, some use water pond to maintain that, water not only your pot, but the surrounding as well, keep your pot away from smooth surface especially those that are under direct sunlight

Ok thx for the tips. BTW can planting/putting more plant also increase humidity? Can this also work for neps? I think i put moss all around the pot for my N.sibuyanesis and N. sanguinea. Just to make sure is the below nep a N. sanguinea?

Nice nep, looks like N. sanguinea but I can't be 100% sure.

Yes, putting more plants together and using live moss is another way of increasing humidity. Have to watch out for wind though, wind will blow away humidity...
