hi I just want to hear if there are any of you who have experienced that your sarracenia has only come with flower this year but no funnels yet?  have several that have not progressed after flowering.  they are several years old and have always been in top condition.  it is funnels from last year that are in the picture

Yes, this does happen and I've no idea why. If you don't want seed remove the flower head - I usually do this after petal fall. If it's early enough in the year the plant will some times produce pitchers. I reckon that an early spring followed by a cold period can confuse the plant into forgetting about summer and waiting for next year. Removing any flower buds next year may help the plant recover in the long term.
