Acclimatisation is simply reducing the humidity slowly, over many weeks, until you eventually get down to room humidity. It's a very slow process that can't be rushed. There is also a certain level below which, no matter how much you acclimatise, the plant will not like.
I bought one of the nutans/heterodoxa (can't remember which way round) crosses about 6 weeks ago. I failed to acclimatise it. It's not showing any bad signs but I hear Heliamphora can be SLOWLY unforgiving. Have I screwed up? What should I do? I spray it each day and water the traps every couple of days. Mine is in a west-southwest window and gets a lot of afternoon sun.
Another question, what's the best compost? Peat/perlite mixes or pure sphagnum (for a window grown plant)?

This is how I did it (no rocket science involved, really):
I just put the plants outside when I got them last year, although under a table to get them accustomed to the new lighting conditions. Then, after a week or so, I moved them on the table and let the sun right at 'em. I did this in early Summer, so the plants had some time to get accustomed before the winter came. Over the winter, they were kept in an unheated winter garden where they survived -8 degrees centigrade. All pitchers died off, but are replaced this year with new, hardy (adult) pitchers. Smaller than they were last year, for sure, but very "thick".
I'll see how things are next spring, but if most of my Heliamphora make it through next winter, I'll get myself a couple more fancy ones :)
Oh, I grow them in 50% perlite (lower part of the pot) and live sphagnum.
Hope this helps :)
