Hello! this might be a stupid question but I thought I should make sure since I don't want to loose another plant

I live in tropical area (SEA specifically Indonesia) and I have a very small Nepenthes globosa it's been raining heavily 4-8 hours everyday and probably will be for the rest of the year, is it ok to keep them outside or will it be too soggy and they will get root rot? should I put them outside when its sunny and inside at night when its raining? Or is it fine just leaving them be?

What kind of container do you have it in? I would think if it was in a net pot with long fiber sphagnum moss and perlite, it may be better than if it was in a pot without drainage in peatmoss mix. But allowing it to dry a bit between rains would probably be best.

would just letting it in the sun from morning to afternoon be sufficient or should I being it inside?

It really depends if the media stays wet or not. If getting sun each morning is enough to stop it from staying with the roots wet every moment, I would think it is much better outside than inside. Do you have a covered area that would allow morning sun, but protect it from the strong rain ?
