|As for truncata, I think it would do well too, with its think leaves.[/QUOTE]|
Huh Pat - what's the IQ of your truncata?
You are very nosy! First you question my Nepenthes' gender, and now their IQ? I'll have you know that my Nepenthes are very introverted and shy. So... I'll never tell!
[img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Funny. swords, I would go ahead and TRY to carefully adjust the Truncata and Ventricosa to house humdity as the house is usually the same as outside ( or near it at least). Personally, I would put the Truncata in full to part shade and the ventricosa in a little more sun if possible, if not or you fear leadf burn put it with the Truncata. Don't bring Alata, Coccinea or JF out, they wouldn't do to hot IMO, as they all require somewhat more milder conditions. Ventriocosa is pretty much nuke proof so it should do fine. Truncata due to it's T H I C K [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] leaves would/will do eceptionally well with occasional misting like every 30 mins or every hour or so. And I beat you all out with Nep. IQ! My Rajah would beat all your Neps. in math! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] j/k.

Ah well Pat I asked purely for scientific purpose. I had the impression at least some of my plants are more on the dumb side:
P.S.: I would try it in steps putting a Nepenthes outside. If they may be able to stand the conditions on a windowsill you may go one step further. But I would be very careful watching if they wilt. You'll see it first on the pitcher lids.
Well, I'm gonna put out my 2 cents here, since I disagree with a few things that I've read so far.
I think that you can put almost all of your neps outside if you acclimatize them appropriatly. I have most of my neps outside(PR is almost at the same lattitude as hawaii), and they are doing fine, even with humidity swings from 50 to 100%. I have thin-leaved neps there (ampullaria, mirabilis, coccinea), and, believe it or not, they are my fastest growers. The temps here are in the high 80s right now, which isn't very different from what you wrote. I think that you should go for it, but do it a little at a time. I might try to put my highland plants outside (err.. at least the cheap ones [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] ) once they get bigger.
And Joachim, Why is that leaf of the utric coming out of the bottom of the pot [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
