My first Nepenthes sanguinea is on the way. Hoping it will help alleviate the terrible japanese beetles destroying my rose bushes. Current plan is to have it full sun/partial shade on a screened in porch with a medium of 1:1:1 lfsm, perlite, and peat moss. Will move to windowsill in fall. Any recommendations and/or anecdotes?

I never seen that before. So many ants. I wish mines would eat more ants.
