Mine has just coiled it's first several tendrils around some of my bamboo and the surrounding foliage. Here's a couple pics of my drab but proud sibuyanensis x xtrusmadiensis, which is a bit slower than the majority but not too slow...
I know it's not as grand but I am striding towards it.

Rob, Not sure what else the area those plants are growing in, but it appears to me that they'd do much better if given more air circulation and possibly light. Nepenthes loves to get very wet and then dry out a bit before getting wet (like so many plants) again. Air circulation also allows plants to grow better leaves and in turn pitchers. I would get the plants off the ground and perhaps placed higher like on a wall top or bench.
The higher placement allows fast drainage and lots of air that helps them harden and produce sturdier, thicker foliage and hard pitchers.
