That pot looks huge creepa... not that it will matter, but it seems oversized. Did you say what it was potted in? Like others have said already, it looks like a ton of peat with no aeration. Ideally a highlander (Ventrata being a hybrid between two H/Lers) should contain little to no peat in the mix. What brand peat did you use? Does it have fertilizer included in it (don't want that)? Keep us posted on the plant's progress (or decline). Oh yeah, what kind of light is the plant receiving? Do you know what the humidity is where it is being grown? Good luck with your Nep . If it dies it shouldn't be too hard to get another one. I might even be able to make a cutting and root it for you (although it will take a while before it's ready to be shipped).
