    Let see...I start putting my hardier plants (Saracenia & VFT's) outside when weather starts warming up. Like around 40 or warmer. If the temps drop quick, VFTs, some dews and Sarras can handle a light frost with little problem. Once the overnight temps stay above 40f or so, I leave all my plants outside 24/7. My N. ventricosa (I have three) are hung in my apple tree where they get dappled light and all the bugs they can catch.

    Yes, once it starts staying 40 or warmer at night, It's usually safe for me to leave my Sarrs and VFTs and other CPs outside overnight. Just keep an eye on the weather and be ready to bring in your plants if it's decides to get cold again.

    Hehehe, take your time and get the feel for how your plants adapt to being outside. It took me a while to realize that being at a higher altitude affected which plants I could have in direct sun and which ones I needed to put in some shade. My pings for example, would get smaller and smaller if I put them in direct sun through the summer, sometimes 'till they just disappeared to nothing. Then in winter the ones that survived would grow larger again. I eventually realized that the sunlight was stronger here than say California because there was less air to filter out UV and other light frequencies. The pings weren't able to handle the stronger light and I have to put them in partial shade.
