    Of course it is probably getting better growing conditions than it was before... di you change the growing conditions recently?

    Yeah, Nepenthes tend to turn a healthy, reddish tint when grown in strong light. Your plant looks pretty healthy, so nothing to worry about!

    I don't grow Nepenthes, but I would say it's really healthy, but you might want to slighty keep the water down just a little tiny bit (Your choice, though :P).

    Yeah I wouldn't keep a highlander too wet. I grow my HLs/intermediates very dry. I also don't let water pool on the leaves. Might not be a great idea.

    ok, thanks guys! I was also wondering, When one of my pitchers shrivels up, it doesnt mean the plant is unhealthy. Cause the right pitcher shriveled up but the left one still looks fine. I just got this plant like 2 weeks ago, It is my first nep i guess im just worried
