    The title says it all. Can it adapt to full sun or should I try to find a place under a bush or hang it on a tree branch under some of it's leaf's?

    Ventricosa is a very hardy species and certainly can be adapted to full sun. I have several that grow in full sun all year round here in Sydney, and it is the only Nepenthes species that I grow outdoors in full sun that did not get burnt when we had a freak 47C day in January.

    Yes, it adapts very well to full sun without any sign of stress of burn.

    I have some of my ventricosa plants under full sun for more than 10 hours each day here in Puerto Rico, with the burning Caribbean Sun over them year-round. And all of them are very healthy and without marks... They just love it.
