    I always fill pitchers of new plants with water.

    Don't do that once they get settled in.

    OK, finally, after a long day of school and my sister playing toontown for 1.5 hours, I can go on. Anyway, it is a ventricosa "red" (Don't know if that makes a difference). Can you open them with your fingers or tweezers or something? And why do you fill them with water? To regain some of the lost fluids in there or what?

    Well if you were shipped across the country in a box then you'd want some water, too.

    You can also gently tap the pitchers to simulate a bug being trapped. This sends a signal to the plant to produce more digestive fluids (although not a lot) so filling the pitchers about a third of the way will help it.

    You have to swirl it like a fine Merlot.

    Can you just pull it up and stick a bug in. The biggest one is only about 1 inch tall, but a few more are growing.

    Like I said before, just water the plant and within a couple of hours the lid will open.

    Yeah, I think you are a little too concerned with a couple pitcher lids. Just let it be and the next ones will be fine. They are probably just shocked from travel. Patience, grasshopper.
