Maxima pitchering weirdly.

Is it normal for a Lake Poso maxima to have a slit on the opening of a pitcher instead of a lid for the first few days or so? When I got it, it had a normal pitcher, then it spent a year with no pitchers, and now it has three that look like they're growing, but without a well defined lid on them, and one of them has a downward facing slot or something in the forward facing part of the lid. Fortunately, my other plants seem to be doing well, just got a miranda to pitcher quite nicely, and same with a year old ventricosa.
Pictures help greatly
Agreed, pics are needed.
Sounds like humidity fluctuations

True. Same sort of thing happened to my Nepenthes fusca when I first had it.
