    Sarracenia never regrow parts of the pitcher. They just make new ones. Pitchers are leaves, and leaves don't heal. (Usually - certainly not among Sarracenia.) Your plant will grow new leaves and the damaged ones will eventually die and fall off.

    It doesn't matter which sarr it is, they cant regenerate the mouths or lids if they're cut off. You'll have to wait for new totally new pitchers to grow.
