Plenty of sunlight....no tap water. Only rain, distilled, or reverse osmosis water. Are you going to keep it inside or out on a patio?

It's very beautiful! You have a very nice specimen there my friend. Sorry it took so long to reply to you. They like a lot of sunlight but you do have to be careful...they do tend to get sunburned if left in direct sun for too long. A shade cloth would be recommended if in a certain extra sunny area outdoors. I would recommend a partly sunny area if outdoors...where it gets both some shade and direct sun...but bright light throughout the day. Inside a very sunny window is needed.

Thanks!! No worries, so far so good. I’m keeping it on my front porch where we tend to get a lot of flying bug action. It’s south facing but very well shaded. I’ve watered it w/ distilled. Does it need lots of humidity? I’ve been misting it every day because I noticed the tips were drying up a bit. And the pitchers create their own liquid inside correct?
