    wow very nice, my doesnt look very well compared to yours then...

    For now, I give it morning sun for like 2-3 hours and then I give it artifical light with 1.3k lumens for 3-4 hours at night.

    Is this ok?

    5-7 hours photoperiod are you saying?

    Yikes. Even dormant temperate plants get more than that.

    If that IS your photoperiod a photoperiod of 13-16 hours would be good. 10-13 if you get morning sun however, but, don't cut the photoperiod up, keep it contiguous then cut it off then contiguous again like a normal day and night sort of thing.

I've grown the plant in about 40% humidity and in full sun but the process of acclimation needs to be SLOW, especially if it is a greenhouse produced unit as this appears to be. So go for wet, cool and bright and as the plant gets a deeper "suntan" you can give it more direct light.

    Growing in a terrarium under lights can produce some real monster sized plants, but they will have less color. Keep it going long enough and you'll have endless plants from the roots where they form, and then you can experiment and see which culture is better for you.
    I used to grow my nepenthes ventrisoca red in hawaii in the sun ALL day long it took time but it was happy there while anothe unkown species did not ever like full sun many because it did not tan up like the other nep. Right now my cape is adjusting it's stems are turning red and still keeping dew with 50 degree drops. Could someone supply pics of the other 2 sister sundews? I am wanting to get all 3 from someone if I can find somone who grows them

    It's not a Dionaea and should not be put into direct sunlight.

    it may be adaptable, but it is VERY delicate when it comes to shifting it's environment. More than likely, your plant will die if you put it in full sun. Best to grow it on a windowsill, if a terrarium is not available.
    It is better to burn out, than to fade away....

    Agreed. Bright, indirect light is all it needs light wise.
