    If your N. Ventricosa pitchers aren't opening it's probably due to low humidity. Although, it could also be root rot but that's unlikely, because it seems to be effecting all three of your plants. From my experiance N. Ventricosa grows well as a highland or lowland. But grows slower under the latter conditions.
    Try this.
    (1) raise the humidity
    (2) check the roots
    (3) wait

    My experence has shown that the age of the plant and each piture can greatly affect how open the lid is. Also, their are two types of piture that they make so that could also be something to consider
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    I belive Darcie is referring to polymorphic (baby pitchers) and mature pitchers are the major differences. polymorphic pitchers have a very tiny lid that will not open a whole lot greatly depending on the species. If your N. ventricosa is a large plant (6 inches diameter and larger) it should have mature pitchers or nearing it. polymorphic pitchers are usually produced when the palnt is quite young., but they can be produced if something environmentally has happened. I'd say just wait on it.
