What I need to be happy in your home:

Light: Your Nepenthes Pitcher Plant prefers bright indirect light. It will tolerate low light, but growth may slow.

Water: Water when the top 25% of the moss is dry, do not allow moss to dry out completely. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer. The pitchers of your plant need to maintain water at all times. If they appear to be dried out, add half an inch of filtered water or rainwater to each pitcher.

Your Nepenthes will greatly benefit from added humidity. They can tolerate lower humidity, but will often stop growing new pitchers and you might see some die-off of existing pitchers. You boost the humidity for your pitcher plant by misting them, adding a humidifier nearby, or adding a pebble tray under it.
