    Kris, othello is all greenish white, not red. It's anthocyanin free.

    Bob, I have to respectfully disagree with what some of the others said. Growing Darlingtonia indoors in a window is very possible. Elgecko, a very reputable grower, grows his indoors in a window during the hot summer and then places them outside for fall in preparation for dormancy. I believe when winter comes along he brings them into an unheated garage so they don't freeze during dormancy.
    I plan on doing the same thing this growing season just for the fact that I'll be able to see and enjoy my Darlingtonia more often. I did grow my plant outdoors in the NC heat last summer without special care or problems... However, I may have lost it through the dormancy, I'm still not sure. (I somewhat neglected it during winter... let it freeze, dry out, etc) Good thing I got a backup from Lowes over the winter.

    Also, all of my Darlingtonia have been from Lowes. I don't find them hard to grow at all, aside from the winter issue (which is really just my fault). I think when people say the plants from Lowes are hard to grow, they mean because they are in such a bad state when they receive them.

    Good Luck

    I wasn't thinking I would be able to find one for another couple of mounths, so I would be very excited if you had anything
