    What would be the effect of having the humidity in the winter down to 25-30 range?

    If it's used to higher humidity, it will probably stop pitcher production for awhile. I'd recommend a little higher humidity than 40% anyway.

    Jmurphy, in the winter it will probably slow down in growth & stop pitchering....or you may get smaller pitchers. At any rate, it certainly wont die or anything....might just look a little ragged.

    But in the summer it will start to grow better when the humidity goes up in my room or even if I put it outside?

    Yes, grown in anything close to ideal conditions, N. ventricosa will pitcher. I'd bring it inside once the nighttime temperatures approach the mid-fifties. One thing - since you're going to expose the plant to some low humidities, pot it up in a decent size pot so that it doesn't dry out quickly, and so the damp lfs provides some local humidity.

    In the summer should it be in full sun or shaded? What size pot do you think would be good?
