    Flowers drain energy from VFT?!?! Don't tell mine that LOL
    Well, they tend to have a break from growing traps whilst flowering. I suspect it's to do with them having to readjust their growth points to resume trap growth, rather than there being an energy drain.

    The energy the flower creates from photosynthesis more than covers the energy needed to grow it.

    They look fine to me! Mine sometimes get so curled the look like a nep tendril, but they eventualy look fine. And dont be so worried about the flowers, its what plants wanna do. If it really would kill your plant, it wouldnt make it in the first place. Good luck!

    I just got one also, and it is doing the same thing. I've never seen that before. Anyone have any more thoughts? some pics:

    Can't see your photos.

    As has been said, it's not unusual for minor pitchers to be curved at first. S. alata is another species which does a similar thing.
