    I've got a ventricosa red from pft - and it has the same problem. Very small lids, though the pitchers grow normally. A trick Pyro told me about is to mist the plant everyday. I still have smaller lids than normal, but they're looking better as the plant matures. You can see a typical messed-up pitcher on the bottom left of this pic.

    I saw your plant at a Gubblers pot, a very strange Nep, the same you have, i think that is a mutation.

    I have found that my ventratas, alatas, and ventricosas are all very tolerant of low humidity, but once it drops below a certain point, they start forming pitchers with wilted lids similiar to some of the ones in the pictures above.

    Wickedthistle: This could be why misting helped your plant.
