Hi everyone! Lovely forum you all have. I'm an amateur collector of carnivores with 3 nepenthes and a handful of others.

Can you identify this nepenthes?

It has cute, relatively large reddish pitchers with no spots and nice small bright green leaves. I've had it for over a year and it seems really happy in household conditions in a bright sunny window with daytime temps at 65-70 and night time 55-60. Low-ish humidity doesnt seem to bother it and it lives in a peat/long fiber sphagnum/sand mix and only gets distilled water or rainwater.

If you have any other tips to help it thrive I would appreciate it very much. Thanks!!

EDIT: Anddddd of course I post this in the wrong place for my first post. Meant to put it in the ID forum.Sorry about that!

You appear to have a "Lady Luck" which is a commonly available cultivar. It is also sometimes called "Bloody Mary".

Thanks for the quick reply and the ID! Do you know if it does well as a highland or a lowland?

This hybrid should be very tolerant of a variety of conditions. It's often sold as a houseplant.

Looks like 'Lady luck' to me. It's a hybrid that should be tolerant to a wide variety of conditions. If it's doing well in your current conditions, no need to change anything.
