    I agree that you can grow nearly any Nepenthes outside (with conditioning). However..., I personally don't think it is healthy to continuously switch growing conditions (in a terrarium on cold days, outside on hot days etc). I also think that terrariums can provide more consistent environments (which can be adjusted), and that a terrarium grown plant will grow faster than if you just throw a plant outside to deal with whatever conditions are available. Just my personal opinions, of course it's different for every person, regarding particular Nepenthes species, outdoor conditions, etc.

    The dried up pitcher is pretty old. Lot's of new ones forming. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...
