    When my sarracenia purpurea flowers i was wondering if this weakens the plant at all like a vft. If i didnt let it grow would the plant grow bigger and stronger or does it not matter?

    Unlike VFT, Sarracenia do not waste much energy when they are in flower. It barelys affect the plant during the growing season.

    Plus, Sarracenia flowers look much better then VFT.

    Don't cut them, just enjoy their beauty.

    Well, I usually cut them after the petals drop, unless I pollinated it and got seed, no use in wanting the plant wasting energy for unwanted seed.
