    There was some discussion on growing Darlingtonia in warm conditions (e.g. Florida) in this thread on the ICPS board. It may be of some use (besides the great photos).

    Tell you what. I'm going to wait awhile before getting one. I'll be moving away for college this fall and my growing space is already pretty crowded.

    Don't laugh, but a plant sent to me from the West Coast not only survived for me, it did so outside, from spring through fall. I had it wintered in a co-worker's garage and last spring it flowered. I went on to produce a stolon and is again being wintered in the co-worker's garage. I hope to bring it and the rest of the temperates back in a few weeks. We may not be as warm as Red Lion, but we had a few days in the 90's last summer.
