    I have N. sanguinea, possibly am N. coccinea, a well as cuttings of ventrata, miranda, more coccinea, and something picked up from Lowes. Currently, they are all indoors, at the lab. Do you think they can handle SE PA summers, hanging from a southern exposure (yet partially shielded) front porch?

    Maybe. Depends on the humidity.

    Is there a TerraForums for dummies (for me?) I have a few photos here and there and would like to post them. Can someone just e-mail me with a step by step way of doing it.

    I have a few photos of my plants that I have moved out in full sunlight just to see how it would do. Many show a real bad burn on their leaves, and eventually newer leaves overlap older leaves and the newer leaves are more sun tolerant-resistant than the previous lower leaves.
    I have many plants in full Hawaii (deep dark tanning) sun. They hide many sunburn scars. The leaves and traps are thick, leathery and very colorful. I have my N. Gentles in full sun and they've turned almost black with lime green mottling and a bright orange peristome. Their lids are a calico of brown, orange and purple. Leaf surfaces are covered with a silvery felt over to the tendril and on the pitchers themselves. Plants grow erect and now currently sports flower spikes that appear to be male flowers.

    Burn them, and watch how they adapt to their new conditions. I wouldn't move seedlings out like that, just more matured plants. I've done this with N. rafflesiana, ampullaria and tobaica and have gotten larger, leathery more colorful leaves.

    Tre,

    Southeast PA + summer = Florida weather (hot, miserable, sticky, and humid!)

    Okay Jim. Put anything outside you'd like. Hmm my bical is getting a much bigger pitcher now that it is actually outside and not on the porch. My highlands don't like summer too much but the lowlands love it.
