    I moved my windowsill Nepenthes outside into full sun a while back, and i found the first obvious sign that it was a good move today while moving the (crowded plants) around a bit. In spite of the dry days of scorching sun, all three plants are looking better. The N. sanguinea, in particular, seems happy: two new basal shoots (the first i had on a nep... in the last two months, fully half of my nepenthes have put them out, though!), and... a monster pitcher!

    Well, okay, not so huge (6-1/2"), but it seems big to me.




    Note that these are all highland/intermediate plants. I really don't think lowland neps would take these conditions very well.

    Very nice D.

    My 2x N. sanguinea are smaller than your plant. When I got them a few months back the first pitchers produced were about 5cm (2"). Each new pitcher is getting progressively bigger with the latest being about 15cm (6"). Can't wait to see if the increase continues and at what size they will max out.

    Cool! Was yours orange before you put it in brighter sun? I'd love to have a red sanguinea like that! My "red" N. sanguinea is more like dark maroon/brown and still looks like a funny N. ramispina to me.
