Is it a Nepenthes ampullaria?
This is the most common Nep I can think of that makes a lid which is like a tiny stem. Here's a pic (not mine) that I found online:
Neps, Neps, Neps.........
Hello Orien, I've seen young immature Neps form half-fommed or incomplete pitchers, such as a N. truncata from TC which develops very slowly and struggles to form a mature pitcher even under supposedly 'ideal' conditions. *If your plant is small (from Lowe's, probably so), I would be inclined to think that poor growing conditions during transport coupled with being a young plant would very easily produce an ill-formed pitcher. *You may know that pitcher development in an othewise healthy looking Nepenthes is directly affected by the more exacting cultural requirements of the particular species.
arie they look like those ones

Welcome to the forums. I wouldn't be surprised if its just bad care. Places like that don't make the slightest effort to provide the proper care so you can get all kinds of weird looking pitchers (dried, rotten, moldy, mishapen, broken) until you get it home and take care of it properly. Once its settled in and started growing, you will probably start getting normal pitchers. If it continues to produce the same type of pitchers every time, then maybe its got some genetic problem. But I'll bet it will respond to good care. I just rescued a n. tobaica from my local greenhouse. Wish I could have taken them all. Hate seeing them sitting there with dead or damaged pitchers.
Good luck Orien. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
