    how long have you had it? what kind is it? what conditions is it in? if you just recently got it, it is just adjusting to its new surroundings.

    This also happens once the pitcher reach the end of their effective lifespan. That amount of time varies depending on the species or hybrid. In this case though, Alex is right as to what is causing it. Btw, the pitcher itself will now slowly start to die from the top down. You can leave it there, cut it off as it browns, or cut the whole thing off. I usually leave it until the entire pitcher has browned, so as to let the plant continue to suck back in the nutrients/water in the bottom of the pitcher
