    New Experiment

    Originally set up for Aldrovanada (which I no longer can see), it turned into a lost cause sanctuary for Darlingtonia (cool running water and shade), as well as a home for U. alpina, Cephalotus, and a Heli. Also in there are 3 pots of D. macrantha tubers, and either dead or severely unhappy D. regia & D. slacki. The Darlingtonia may look horrible right now but there is new growth emerging.

    How are you circulating the water?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    Maybe not clear from this photo but the container is a few feet away from a black, plastic outfall, which continuously emits water. It isn't at a gushing rate but when I fill up my gallon jugs and disturb the debris, it clears up in a couple minutes. The air temp is in the 80's and the water flowing through is ~55-60 F.

    That water is clean enough (mineral wise) to use?

    You "before" picture looks like it's part of a storm water system (the garbage etc...). I would be nervous about pollutants released upstream damaging your plants.

    As I recall Jimscott works part time for a lab that tests water quality so I think he knows what he is doing.

    I'm not doubting his judgment, I'm just shocked to see CP potable water coming out from a storm drain. Plus in the 2nd picture of the thread it looks like there is some debris and trash (styrofoam cup) floating around. If it's CP friendly then I'm WAY jealous!
