    I was going to keep it under half of a clear 2l pop bottle. Is that ok?

    Cheers

    No... if you put it in the sun under a clear dome you will cook the plant. I think what Jimscott was trying to say was to put it in a sheltered location with partial sun for a few days and gradually increase the light. Or you can just go ballistic and toss it in full sun. All the old leaves will fry but the new leaves will be adjusted soon as they pop out!
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Don't hate.

    Just BLAST EM IN FULL SUN.
    Adequate aqua & they should be fine. If they are waterlogged then that's fine, because the sun will change that.

    No. It Is not a tropical plant!

    I'm sure he wants best for his plant. Are you trying to make him kill it. Dormancy is best for this plant. Cold weather is not the only way to trigger dormancy, but is the most important. Reduced water and light is also a factor of dormancy.
