"water" in Nepenthes is not really water. It is a secretion from the plant. I find that most Nepenthes will not secret again if the pitcher is dry out (in that same pitcher)... But if you want to put water in for the look then any type of water will be fine but your plant have no benefit from it

Hey David1617, where did you buy your Nepenthes in Gran Canaria? I'm having trouble finding any carnivorous plants in the islands....
