    Sorry, I've been out a while. All of the pictures clearly show that your plant is N. x ventrata (N. ventricosa x N. alata). It should be very adaptable, as long as it gets enough light and doesn't get waterlogged.

    Between the bathroom and the basement, the bathroom is better, but its definitely not a good place for the plant. The windows are also made of frosted glass, which reduces the light the plant gets even more.

    no, bathroom windows are the same all around the house, it was built in the late 70's and the windows never changed, but ok ill move the plant back to the bathroom. oh btw when the plant was outside during the summer, flys would attached them self to the end of a terdial with out a pitcher
    and die stuck in place, what that about? i just took them off, and put them in the pitcher, lol

    thanks!

    Ah, sorry. The window screens looked like frosted glass in the picture.

    Its somewhat strange that flies would die on the tendrils. Are you sure they aren't pests? If they are just normal flies you can feed them to the plant or leave them, it doesn't really matter.
