There are these white things on my Nepenthes Ventratata and my Nepenthes Spectabilis x Ventricosa. I am wondering what they are. I am just hoping they aren't mealybugs. Please tell me what they are.

I do mist my plant with distilled water 2 times everyday. I tried to take it off with a towel but wasn't successful.

The 2nd and 4th pictures look natural, things like that appear on my Nepenthes Sanguinea and it can easily be wiped off with a wet paper towel. I am not sure about the other one that I suspect is a Nepenthes Spectabilis x Ventricosa but it may be the same thing.
