This is my first year growing this Sarracenia, and its pitchers used to stand tall, but now they fall over pretty much immediately after opening. Why is this? Is it bad?

If they were just moved, then that can be it. While it is not as pretty, it won't hurt the plants. If it bothers you, you can put in a bamboo stake and tie them up. That is what I do with my flavas.
