Can someone help me Identify this plant that I bought from the home depot nursery.

Is the reddish color normal?

Is this too big?

Does this look healthy?

What is it's name?

How old is it?

Nepenthes x ventrata

A few years old, the red colour is good the redder the better. Big is good for a nep, give it three years and it might just be ten times the size. It looks very healthy

Here are more pictures I decided to take during the day.

I mist them 2-3 times a day with distilled water. I water them once in the morning with distilled water. I give them plenty of sunlight.

My venus fly traps- the squirrel's kept uprooting them and eating the bulbs on the bottom so I decided to hang them and I haven't seen the squirrel messing with it. The soil is made of Long fibered sphagnum moss and desert sand.
