    Hi im growing my nepenthes in a 10 gallon aquarium with a 40 watt compact florecent light bulb and I was thinking of growing it outside in about 30% shade because many peoples neps. look much better when grown outside. So what should I do?

    Where do you live? It all depends on what your weather conditions are like.

    I live in Reading, PA, similar climate. Mine are all outdoors in hanging baskets. Until this week, they were doing fine. A few have reacted. I don't think they like the excessive heat. That is to say that different Neps can tolerate the heat better than others. The ones giving me trouble came from Home Depot and don't know what species they are. Could be ventricosa. You might have the same.

    I grow my N. Sanguinea "orange pitchers" outside in part sun. I'm gonna bring it inside to a sunny windowsill in the winter though.

    Here's a pic, looks pretty healthy, right?

    106? Gulp! Inside would be best! This is only fit weather for rattlers and scorpions - not humans and CP's! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]
