Just as an indicator, how long does it usually take for a healthy plant in near perfect conditions to form pitchers (from leaf formation to fully developed pitcher)?

Usually a month for normal neps...more for slower growing variants. Someone correct me if I am wrong!

the growth of the pitcher will totally depend on your conditions you provide the plant , if its close to there natural habitat climate , they can be very quick matter of weeks to a month , but if you have it all wrong it can take months ,and it all so as stated depends of the type of plant you have as well , a lot of hybrids from there pitchers much quicker than specie plants most of the time as there usually more vigorous growing plant ,with exceptions !!.
