    Have you checked for pests? It could be mites, fungus gnats, or a number of other things that mess with new growth.
    All of your conditions are fine, so definitely break out the magnifying glass and check out the growth points and media if you haven't already done so.

    Also, I recommend isolating the plant until you figure out the problem. You don't want to risk infecting the rest of your collection.

    good luck!

    I looked at the plant it doesn't seem to have any bugs or anything else on it and also the leaf the that was going to come out is half dead so could that be stopping it from forming any new leaves

    You might have been watering it too much. I know veitchii likes to dry out a little more than regular Nepenthes before being watered. The same goes, with varying degrees, for veitchii hybrids as well.
