    Noah and I live in the land of sunburn and blisters. Full sun means full bright sunshine-on-the-leaves usually. I personally keep mine in full sun for just part of the day. It would burn to a crisp outside 'cause I live in a valley that holds heat, it really depends on where you live.

    Perlite is that somewhat annoying white stuff that's like crunchy styrofoam.

    If you do give it the sun wickedthistle described [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] only do a few hours or provide some kind of shade cloth. THe leaves tend to burn rather quickly otherwise. And ALWAYS keep it watered.

    -by sun I meant sunny windowsill or partial shade outside and by perlite I meant a product similar to pumice that comes in little white balls and is available at your garden center.

    Drosera capensis (sundew)can be grown on a window will with lots of water ?. 50/50 perlite/peat . When the seedlings have a few leaves, weed or spread them out so they are no closer than an inch from each other. Otherwise they grow very slowly.
    i live in canada wich is about 43 degress above the equator, so i was thinkin if maybe i could have it in full sun for more than 3 hours ? this pft place sure has a lot of nice people [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Unhappy

    I live in upstate SC, and I want to make sure my vfts, pitchers, and sundew grow well..should I have them out in the open air or should I keep them inside on the windowsill to get partial sun? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

    Question

    Hi everyone, I have a Capensis (well, it WAS a Capensis, now it's 4 Capensis(ies?) not sure of the plural...) I live in lower NY state, and I give all my plants full sun for 3-6 hours, and bright conditions for another 1-2 hours. Most of them are growing like map...except for the Nep. I guess I am in-nep-t with those pitchers...(sorry ).
    As far as Venus Flytraps in updates SC, well, you live where they come from!! I shouldn't think you'll have any trouble as long as they get about 4-6 hours of good sun.

    Basically, if you above N. Carolina, where VFTs originate from, then you can leave your VFTs outside in full sun. I would gradually introduce them to the sun however, say 2 hours on day one, adding an hour each day.
