I agree with you paul i got 10 of these last year march and thry only started to pitcher in september but now theyve stopped again but conditions are better now than theyve ever been so i expect them to start pitchering around august
for me, this plant pitchered straight out of the bag. It didnt miss a pitcher and grew well. Until it started vining.... Its about a meter tall, but none of its tendrils want to develop. Its the exact same story with my inermis X singalana and they are right next to each other.

I've had this plant for around six months and it's pitchered every month for me. I've never had any problems with it even though I'm the first to admit that I'm not a highly skilled grower! The only things I can think of that may be different about how I grow it is that I directly spray all my plants every morning and evening, (small collection so this is easy!) and that its getting very bright light, so much so that the leaves always have an orange tinge and die off fairly quickly. Whilst my plant is never going to be a show stopper as the pitchers increase in size veeery slowly and are only around 4 inches tall, it seems happy. Hope this can provide any insight!
Lol The back sheet of plastic and half of the roof on my GH came loose in a storm (so they merely function as 'kind of' windbreakers now). so for about three months in summer - conditions were not as great and a few of my taller plants have stopped pitchering. some plants that stopped pitchering at that time are starting to pitcher now again - so im hoping the inermis X bongso and inermis X singalana will follow
Now if I could only get mine to pitcher. It is growing well, in fact the vine has grown over two feet since I got it, but so far no pitchers....
Hey Keith! I think this must be a fussy cultivar, since several of us have reported having difficulty getting it to pitcher. I've engineered my grow space to be close to ideal for most highland/intermediates, and yet this plant has been stubborn and hesitant to pitcher. I've decided to just regard it as one of those types whose rare pitchers are to be appreciated when/if they happen.
Here is the new pitcher today, as it starts to darken in color:
