    Well the roots were in good shape I guess. Not really sure what the roots are supposed to look like, but they werent black! Their really wasnt a root "system" to it. It was one straight root.

    I guess I'll stick the little sucker outside tommorow. However the temp here will eventually get into the tripple didgets this summer, so i'm going to have to find some source for indoor lighting...well, given it makes it (optimism!)

    The leaves are almost as tall as my little finger. But it turns out the leaves arent in as good shape as I thought they were. Maybe the root is in good enough shape that itll be ok. (still trying to be optimistic)

    What a world we live in...mass produced plants...

    *looks up decumbent in the dictionary*

    No, not really. it's spitting out pitchers like crazy though, neat coloring too. I'll take a pic tomorrow. The biggest pitcher is like 3-4 inches high I guess? No where near full grown but still good.

    They also grow well right at a window sill. At "room temp" they don't need ice cubes or ornaments balsting water over their roots. A couple years it was suggested to me to repot and put the pot/plant in another plastic container, such that the plant's pot rests atop the the secondary one. This way, when I water, the water drains through. This method is referred to as "Slacks double pot". When the water collected gets too high I just pour it off and start over again. In winter, I put at a window sill in the cold attic.

    I'd put it in a large pot, with the sphagnum you bought, in the shade outside. Keep it in a tray with a high water table. In a week or so, you could try putting somewhere where it gets full sun for a few hours a day. Keep the water table high and it should be ok in the heat.
