    So what do you want us to say? You have ok humidity for a ventrata, the media mix isn't my personal choice but hey, it's just a ventrata, bright shade. I don't know what advice you want? Seems like you've got it down pat to me. Slowly acclimate it to more light, if you want I guess. I grow my plants crispy.

    how about a few hours of direct sunlight is that ok? Some say that too much direct sunlight will damage this plant.

    Here's what they look like so far:

    Ventrata can take it, if you acclimate it. Sorry about your wrist (that really sucks!) and take it out of the water.

    I grow my ventrata in my windowsill. gets a few hours of direct sunlight everyday. definitely
    take it out of the water. most neps don't like standing in water. just top water it when needed.
    here is my ventrata in the window with low humidity.

    younger pitchers on N. x ventrata (like i said on AIM last night...) will have wings. its only the more adult, developed, mature pitchers that dont have them.
