Just got back from looking around at Lowe's, and surprisingly they had Darlingtonia! I've been wanting one since I started CPs so I had to get the healthiest looking one that I could find (to my eye at least). They stuck it in with a D. adelae and a flytrap sadly (already have both and really didn't want any extras), so it needs to be repotted. I got some dead LFS (been wanting some anyway), and an african violet pot, which I'm hoping will be okay for it. What do you think? It is a light colored one. Would it be a good idea to drill a hole on the inside pot since there isn't one? Or just let the water soak through?
Night temps here should be pretty close to perfect during the summer, but they day temps get high. Do you think it would be best on the east end of the house rather than the west where the rest of the outdoor plants are? Keep in mind that I am in the country, so for as long as the sun is up it's shining. There's no trees, houses, or buildings blocking it, but that also makes for a lot of wind which might help with cooling.
Also, what's the best soil mix? I've read too many different combinations and want to know what everyone would recommend. I have peat, perlite, and LFS (no live sadly).
Any tips would be greatly appreciated! I just don't want to kill this plant that I was so excited to find. I'm still somewhat of a noob with only a year of experience.
