(and yes, I do know this is normal for a newly purchased plant that is trying to adapt to new surroundings). I want it to recover fast and I was thinking... what is a good amount of light for N. ventrata; pick one of the following (or add your own!):
- Bright indirect light (as in like a windowsill)
- 3 hours of direct sun, the rest of the time in not dark, not bright shade
- full sun
- dappled sun light (like under a not very dense tree)
People say partial sunlight is good, but what exactly is partial sunlight.
Anyway, the point is that I am planning to move it to my bright windowsill. The rays of the sun do not fall upon it as this time of year, but I will still call it very bright. Would this highly adaptable and relatively tough species be all right with that?

I now keep it under gro lights only but I also live in a part of the world that it could freeze sitting on my windowsill:( It took a long time to pitchure compared to my other Neps, (Its just forming pitchures now and i got it on Oct. 15th 2011) I also started fertilizing it a month and a half ago now using Better gro Orchid plus no urea 20-14-13 as soon as I started fertilizing at a 1/4 strength recommeneded dose, directly to the soil on the 1st and 15th of the month rinsing with pure water every 2 days after I fertilize to flush it, thats when the pitchures started forming again (Finally!) beleive me I tried everything before like humidifyer on it for hours etc...but nothing worked. N. Ventrata is the fussiest plant Ive ever had.
