    Darlingtonia californica seedlings

    I bought some Darlingtonia californica from a local botanical garden last spring, so i followed the directions but dident renember to take them out of their cold straticfication intill last fall. after bringing it out of the fridge i put it in a plastic bag with some water at the bottom (which i just transfered the pot to a saucer with a soda bottle top over it). While all the sarr pots ( 3 species, Purpurea, leucophylla, flava) all have grown to a pretty good size, the Darlingtonia seedlings (theirs bout 4 of them) havent really showed much activity, there still tiny, have i done something wrong or are they naturally slower growing then other Cp's?

    -thanks , Jon

    Yeah, slower growing than even S. purpurea.

    They're supposed to grow fastest in live Sphagnum.
