    Could be any number of things. Lack of light, pests, fungus, salts... You need to provide a bit of background before a real evaluation can be made.

    What are your conditions? What species is it? How much light does it get? What is it planted in? What are you watering with? Do you see any bugs on/in it? Is there fuzzy growth anywhere?

    Are they new? Were they from a low light environment?

    i would say that you just need to stick them outside(depending on location of course) and let them take the full brunt of the sun. my sarrs only ever showed deformity if the pitcher it was producing was half or partially developed before having received it. if you just got the plants then i wouldnt worry too much, they'll usually come through pretty fast.

    other than that, i would check that the soil mix it is in is peat/something and not some fertilizer soil from the store.
