    LOL! It sure doesn't hurt that he's living in cobra lily country!

    I'm wondering how far apart a cobra lily shoot can pop up from the parent plant. 2" to the left of this plant (Scarlett Belle), I found a young cobra lily plant.



    Now that's 8.5" to the right of the parent cobra lily:



    The planter, for perspective:

    Yeah, my Darlingtonia grow like weeds in Northern California too -- something about those nights in the fifties and all that fog. Go figure.

    The smaller rosettes around one of my younger plants are the product of stolons circling the terra cotta pot several times in the last few months . . .

    You can probably wait a bit but I would go with unglazed terracotta when you do manage to replant. There is a lot to be said for a pot that "breathes" a bit, especially with Darlingtonia. I definitely believe in building in that six-lane margin of error. My older Heliamphora get replanted in clay pots for that same reason . . .
