    hey everyone,i live in the condo and i grow my plants outdoors....Now they arent doing so well(my neps and VFT...are your plants doing ok?it might be because of the cloudy weathers ...i might be wrong, thats why im checking with you guys,maybe my setup is wrong because i moved/hung my neps to a more shady place(lack of space)but it can get direct sunlight in the afternoon.
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    wezx,

    Morning sun or all day indirect sunlight beats afternoon direct sun. Besides, not much sun in the afternoon lately. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    And neps are sensitive to where you move them to almost immediately. The difference is the next pitcher formed or not formed.

    Try not to move your neps around too much.

    Hasn't there been sun? For the past week it's been scorching! My sphagnum moss dries up in a day, that's how hot it is over here. A bit worried about my leaves getting burned, in fact.

    Hmm...I'll have to contradict colin. The times when I moved neps, they only did better.

    East, north/east is great. I suppose if your plant is unhappy, it'll stay the same. But if you got the place right, it'll perk up in a week! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    One dramatic change was a gracilis that didn't pitcher for a year, the minute I moved it just a foot lower to get more filtered sunlight (only about 30 minutes more), it pitchered like crazy! The other was 3 pots of maximaXventricosa that were growing thin green juvenile pitchers. When I lugged them to school and plonked them on the bright windowsill in a air-con room, the next pitcher they all had was deep maroon and more tubby.
