I was thinking of trying some amps and bicals on my front porch.(I live in Maryland) Has any one tried this that lives in a nearby state.

Humidity is going to be your main issue. The plants might thrive, but you probably won't see many pitchers, if any. Ampullaria, as well, doesn't seem to prefer bright light. Mine do better in shade, so depending on the lighting situation, this one might not be the best choice. Oz
The humidity is always high in the summer around here. I can always put up a shade cloth for the amps or I have a more shaded back yard. Thank you for the info.
If you live really closeto the ocean, humidity will probably be high enough. They need warm temps., high humidity, and some shading.
