When I got my pitcher plant Some of the pitchers were brown and dry. One was dry on the rim and another has a slit in the bottom of the pitcher.
Now the pitcher with the slit is all dry and the pitcher with the dry rim is half dried up. Is there a way to help the already dried up ones? Is there a way to prevent this? :( P.s I don't know what species it is.

Well did you recently get the plant? If so it's probably adjusting to it's new environment which takes about a month or so.
Drying up pitchers are completly normal in this case. You'll just have to wait a bit and eventully your plant will put up
