By all means let them flower, especially if you've not seen the flowers before. If you don't want your plants to waste energy making seed then cut the flowers after petal fall, which is what I'll be doing with most of mine.

Cool, I have seen them, it is just that the plants. are looking a bit rough. I should probably be out with the pinking shears.

Oh :( I think of the flowering season as a highlight in the greenhouse, lots of trimmed-short pitcher-bases and the lovely flowers hovering above like so many exotic  butterflies. And generally they even smell nice.

(only trim the dead parts... the green parts are still useful to the plant, but typically that does mean the plants are shorter when flowering and look quite tidy).
