Hi all, I am presently growing some sarracenia, Drosera traci and Dionaea. The green house gets very warm in the day,about 30 degrees and about 80% humidity, even with the door open! Would it be best to move some of the plants outside in the summer, if so, which ones. Thanks Steve.

You can move all your temperate plants such as Sarracenia, Dionaea and Drosera Tracyi outside for the summer in the UK.

Sounds pretty identical to the conditions they experience in the wild and what they've evolved to thrive in.

Sarracenia do fine indoor as long as you have enough light for them and respect their dormancy period come winter. But they will also thrive in a greenhouse under the conditions that you mentioned.
