    It is indeed a ventrata. You should put the Sarracenia outside. The rest would probably do fine by the window with it shut to keep out the heat. I'm not sure about the pings though...

    i'm pretty sure you can stick your red capes outside as long as you slowly acclimate them first to the light, heat, and low humidity.
    but just to make sure, how high do the temps actually get?

    Very true - with most types of plants. If you take a plant and just stick it outside - many will either partially die back or completely croak (esp if it was in a Terrarium). Usually - by the time you see the damage - it's too late.

    Even knowing this - I'd forget and take my Cephs from the basement and just stick them out in the sun in the spring. Lost a few that way... Thankfully - have not done this for a few years.
    All the best,

    Contrary to popular belief, I've found that D. capensis are very susceptible to death by heat. I can't grow the typical or red D. capensis in Miami, FL. I do, however, have a pot of "albino" that are taking the summer just fine so far (minus the bloom that died mysteriously).

    Your S. leucophylla should be fine outside in a saucer of water.
