    Hi

    Im getting a Nepenthes coccinea and Nepenthes ventricosa, from this site, and I my biggest worry about them is the light.
    How much direct light should they get?

    Thanks in advance

    I can only speak for the Ventricosa.

    I have 3x in my glasshouse. They are all at the sunniest end (north for us). The glasshouse is lined with bubble wrap during the winter months (as it is now) and I have 50% shade cloth during the summer months.

    Right now (with the bubble wrap in place so very high light) they are getting about 5-6 hours per day of direct sun light.

    I am also very confident, if adapted slowly, that they could take much more.

    Aaron.

    Edit: Here you go. Just ran down and took a quick picture. Excuse the haziness but I did not notice the camera lens had fogged up a little in the rush.
