I am new to this forum and I have a problem with this Mojito hybrid I got probably three weeks ago. The plant was damaged during the shipping process. I put it under a tree where it gets few hours of morning sun and the humidity there is quite high and yet it hasnt shown any signs of growth (it even looks worse than when it came). What would you, please, advice me to do with it? Should I just leave it under the tree and wait?

It definitely has sun damage and might be dehydrated too. Direct sun is too bright for Nepenthes unless they are carefully adjusted to it. I would put it in the brightest room in your house. Water it 2 times a week or whenever the soil is close to drying out with distilled, reverse-osmosis, or rain-water.
