I've got 3 neps... N. ventricosa 'red, N. alata, and N. sanguinea.. It's almost the summer and I have a choice to make. Now.. I have all three of them on my plant shelf where they seem to grow pretty well, but now that it's warm I wanted to move them outside since I'm sure they'd enjoy the extra humidity and sunlight.
Last year I had two of them outside and occasionally they seemed to just get burnt or get little red spots on the leaves (the sanguinea got the spots, not the ventricosa). So I was wondering if I should just keep them inside this year. Judging from the amount of pitchers my ventricosa is trying to open right now.. I'd say it's pretty happy.. but if there's any chance that they could be happier outside I'd like to take it. So I wanted to get some opinions on the subject.
It usually doesn't get any hotter than 85 degrees outside and where I'd have them, it'd only get direct sunlight from sunrise to about noon/1PM. I really want to see some bigger pitchers opening this year and I also need the extra space on my shelf.. so I'd much rather have them outside but really I didn't want to make a decision without some opinions on it.
