Hello, yesterday I bought a Gaya. some of the pitchers were upside down, but corrected themselves shortly after (the pot had plastic wrap up the sides). I thought the pitcher fluid would come overnight, but is this a lengthier process? I'm used to Sarracenia and lots of pitcher fluid so got a little surprised this one doesn't have any.

My humidity is around 60% if that helps any

Totally normal, those pitchers will likely die off as well unless you bag the plant for a while. Give it a few weeks to adjust.

I might just be impatient, but there is still nothing in the pitchers ): I put a few flies in them today to see if that'd do anything

It'll take some time for the plant to adjust and produce fluid on its own but I second filling up the pitchers partway with pure water to prevent them from dying back
