I'm a new owner of a nepenthe miranda and I bought it from a plant store in Half Moon Bay..her recommendations on care was shower water which I do once a week. When I get a chance I hang it outside in the shade but not in direct sunlight. I then bring it inside to hang. I do open the blinds to give it more indirect light. I give it shower water. I have been reading that distilled water is better. I trimmed off the pitchers to promote growth. Should I switch to distilled water and would repotting it into a larger pot for more growth? I still have one mature pitcher still on the plant.

Switch to distilled or rainwater. Bright, indirect light. How big is it's pot?
