    Check this topic out for grins, chuckles, and maybe a bit of education:

    A Cobra Lily is your friend

    Seriously, I found a decent plant to beign with, this time, and am having success by placing its pot in a vase. I top-water it every day, enough to wet the soil and empty the water when the pot is submerged in water. I kept at the lab in which I work, at a window sill. When the daytime temps were finally cooled enough to be that of the outside, I took it home and placed outside, easing into dormancy. That has worked well for me. No more streams!

    In live sphagnum moss, in a pale pot, with a high water table: 1. Even in 35C heat.

    Ditto. Pale pot, LFS only, chilled distilled water, indoors, a 1.

    Bought in a 4" Lowe's cube in May, now crowded in a 7" pot, vigorously pitchering, and sending out runners to the edges of the pot. In spring I'll repot it into a larger pot and separate the runners. But I'll try to keep pot depth fairly consistent to help maintain the water table at a comfortable level. I may try one indoors and one outdoors next year just to see how they do comparatively.

    Quick question, do Cobra Lily's go dormant? I have one growing outside and I am wondering if I should treat it like a VFT or just leave it out there since I live in an area where Sarr's grow in the dirt year-round.

    Yes, they go dormant.

    If you grow in an area sarracenias do, why do you treat your VFTs differently?

    Sure can.
    Like I posted earlier that I grow mine inside. It stays inside up to fall. Then I move the plant outside with the sarr's and VFT's so it can get ready to take it's winter nap. I leave all the plants outside till the temps get to the freezing point. Then I move them into my unheated garage till temps warm up in spring.
