    They are mainly for drainage; some people use lava rocks in darlingtonia mixes to cool the roots.
    You won't need lava rocks or any of the more complex soil ingredients for standard U.S native carnivores. People use them for plants like Nepenthes.

    Do you mean an automatic watering system? They sell those for a lot of money.

    I've been trying to design some type of syphoning method for constantly pouring water over my darlintonia. It would probably work on a mini bog too. I'll let you know when it's done. (Thats if I ever finish)
