    Those are definitely just pores, my own N. sibuyanesis has always had them and is perfectly healthy.

    No, as stated several times above they are nectaries. Very common in some species of Nepenthes.

    You are right. I inspected my N.mixta more closely and I could see drops of nectar. See photo below. I thought its scales because I have them on some of my other plants, unfortunately and since I had couple of deformed pitchers I assumed scales but now upon close inspection did not find any. I am trying now a new system insecticide and it seems it could work. When I have more I will share.
