VFT's are pretty tolerant of low humidity.

Some droseras are okay too!

Most CPs can live there as long as you mist it to keep some humidity.

Cool! If you are misting it that should raise the humidity around the plant quite a bit.

Can you put a pic of your sill? lol

Yeah, you've showed me that one before :D.

A lot of Butterworts (Mexican) do well (I think) in low humidity areas.

37% ? Wattch out for that nep brother, I know that those are tolerant but a big majority if not all neps need a humidity of 60% approx or above. Pings definately would be a good choice. For vfts, they are pretty tolerant too! As long as their soils stay moist: )

My pinguicula are thriving despite low humidity. I'd recommend Mexican varieties because you can still see their beauty during dormancy (they have a different dormancy to temperate (or European) varieties).

You can also plant them in a huge array of dishes that other carnivorous plants wouldn't approve of -- like abalone shells or ceramic bowls.

Terrestrial Utricularia aren't a bad plant to grow. I've read they require at least 40% humidity, however mine grew quite well with lower. As long as it's kept wet, with occasional flooding and provided lots of sunlight you shouldn't have a problem.

The plant I have is a Utriculara Sandersonii, very easy to grow.
