N. ampullaria questions

Hi there. Recently picked up a N. ampullaria. Beautiful red pitchers. The photos do not capture the true colour. Is this a regular version or a hybrid red? Also the leaves have red in them. Is that normal or has it been stressed before I got it? It has a main stem 6” and a baby with a couple little pitchers.

Very beautiful colour, the dark colouration and spotted leaves comes from "Black Mirable", an ampullaria cultivar. However your plant is not pure ampullaria, pure ampullaria has a distinct pitcher shape, which I don't know how to describe. A more describable feature of ampullaria are super short tendrils, usually no longer than the pitcher body.
