    Or maybe. Duhh!!!! you are trying to grow them against their natural growth cycle.They are dormant during the winter and increase growth during the spring and summer. How long a photoperiod do you have them growing in.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.

    Darlingtonia californica don't make good terrarium plants, they like their roots kept cold. Maybe if you have a cold terrarium it might work. After germination the recommended procedure is to wean them to the ambient humidity and light conditions to where you will eventually grow them. Windowsills are supposed to work quite often.
