    The problem is that air is a fluid. It wants to have an equilibrium so the air with low RH (low to the plants, at least) will suck the water right out of the tendrils. The plant has to have time to adapt and become harder to low RH (within reason).

    I would just leave it inside for a while and let it adjust to one spot. Then, if the temperature at night allows you to leave it outside for the rest of the season you can take it outside. My ventricosa is doing fine inside, and it has never been outside. I would hazard a guess that it is just having no time to adapt to inside/outside all the time.

    Is the potting mix what came with it? What does it look like? Does it have chunks of bark looking stuff? White rocks? Brown soil/peat?

    Good deal. You should at least leave it until that pitcher either matures fully or dies. This will be the ultimate test of what is causing your problems.
