    I have a truncata that i have as a windowsill plants as well as my two maximas that i have in the same pot one with upper pitchers and the other with lower pitchers.

    my truncata is taking up so much space since its about 22"+ in diameter and i was thinking about growing it as a highlander outside my place under a shadecloth, along with my sanguinea and my copelandii, which get full sun. i forgot too that i put my sibuyanensis outside too under a shade cloth too.

    the the truncata, sibu, and the two maximas will first be placed under a shadecloth to get sull direct afternoon sun to allow them to adjust for about a week or so. then the first one to move to full sun will be the maximas then the truncata then after the sibu.

    for the sibu, i dont think i will have a problem with adjusting to full sun after about a month or so becauce for me, highlanders adjust better to outside conditions than lowlanders do. i hope this works but if anything i will take them back inside if there is really bad signs of stress!

    My goal from this is to get a bigger, colorful pitchers and leaves, and a tougher plant overall!

    As far as I know Truncata can tolarate extreamly much. The lowland form can grow as highland and the highland as lowland(not extreme lowland)
    I wouldnt think it would be a problem to put it outside.
    If you are insecure then buy a small one to put outside.
    They arent very expensive. I got my lowland truncata 15 cm for 20 EUR.

    i think it would in my area! there is a thick marine layer or fog always @ night. but doesnt get too cold to get frost everyday in the night through out the mornig. once we got a ligh light frost in december about 2 years ago but that was it.

    Im not sure if it will survive those low temps.(5-frost)
    And you are right that its larger plant that will tolarate full sun
    But you can always try.
    Put it under the shade clothe first..
