It would be helpful to have a picture of the pitcher plant. Some of them require different care. I have to assume that it is Nepenthes alata, though. This is the most common type, as it is most tolerant of different environments.

Now, the most common cause of no pitchers would be a lack of humidity and moisture in the peat moss mix. These should remain moist, making sure that the moss never dries out. It can help to spray the plant, daily, as well.
