    Butch, I am a bit concerned that you have insufficient silicone adhesive on that pot. There's still some in the tube; I feel sure of that, heh, heh, heh. It reminded me a bit of the Drosophyllum pot that Adrian Slack had recommended, back in the 1980s . . .

    Nicely done. Can't wait to see what that Darlingtonia thinks about it.

    hehehehe the silicone was on sale!!

    Yep, the slack pot is very similar, both nested pots but with different goals.
    His outer pot is described as being plastic by Barry Rice. The purpose was to provide improved moisture control for the soil mix.
    Cooling would have been a secondary benefit.

    So I guess its a zeer-slack pot LOL

    More suspected than expected. I guess combining it with recirculating solar pump setup and a larger container with water would make it last longer outside.

    Is the temp. drop you are seeing sufficient for darlingtonia? Sorry i dont grow these and know next to nothing about the requirements.
