    Unhappy

    I was wondering becasue of the braving sarrs in Texas outdoors how it would be if I took my Purple pitcher plant out of the fish tank and put it in the window. I live in Denver and it really dry, but I couldn't imagine it being as bad as Texas. Would it need anything special? would it still need a dome for humidity or would 30% do it? Any suggestions or advice would be lovely. Thanks.

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Hi Shauntell! We're practically neighbors [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] ! I live about 100 miles west of you in Buena Vista. I have several CP's on my porch rail and they are doing fine. I have 2 S. Judith Hindle (only have had these 3 days) and a S. leucophylla on my porch. They stay out 24/7, unless it hails. They sit in trays in ½" of water and get about 7 hours of direct sun from early morning to mid-afternoon.

    That's cool! I've been so sad for my plants all cooped up in their aquarium. So at least one of them can come out of the enclosure until I move. Do I need to put a two liter over it to boost humidity or will frequent mistings be enough? Thank you Big Carnivore Kid. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Hi Shauntell,
    Mine are doing fine without cover, but yours might need to be adjusted to lower humidity gradually since they have been in a terrarium with higher humidity. I would go with the cover if you have a spot out of direct sun. Direct sun on a plant under a cover can cook it quick.
