    I don't think it's a flower. The ones I've gotten tend to be whitish and buddish, and I don't see either of those qualities. Then again I just started growing Darlingtonia this year.

    Actually it was less than 2 hours. Your original post was at 6:47 PM and your second post was at 8:40 PM. Even if it had been 3 or 4 hours you need to relax. It can be seen as annoying when someone keeps posting on their own thread saying "nobody knows?" and "why has nobody answered? 56 people have viewed this thread."

    Having just seen a flower scape emerge from one this week all I see are pitchers in the photos here.

    I've killed several in the past with a too wet media..........Root rot set in......
    the water is delivered to the tray at about the same rate it drains so it normally just has running water over it's roots. It's not normally that waterlogged but it had just finished hailing and raining.
    it is in LFS bark and perlite all equal mixes.
    and the soil is very oxygenated I bet becuase the water is delivered to the plant from a reservoir. everything is just fine

    well I like rarely browse subforums I normally just click new posts, and I posted that response to open the thread back up so it would appear when I hit the new post button as it dropped off the list.
    sorry just a little trick I use sometimes to speed things up it helps.

    It looks like it's sitting in a pool of water with a light layer of sphag on top!
