    No, but a 13 year old usually has parents with a credit card and paypal.

    Yes - bigger is better. Look for a pot that's used for young trees or hedges - something that's deeper than it is wide. I have most of my adult pitcher plants in pots that are a foot or more deep and they love it. Darlingtonia like to spread out and bud off new plants in bigger containers, so it's worth the effort to find a nice, big pot for them. You might ask your dad to buy an apple tree or something similar - get one that comes in a nursery pot and then you get a big pot for less than the price of a large planter from the garden store, and a tree as a bonus. If you search around you can probably find a large bucket that will work for a reservoir, or you can use an open container like a plastic wading pool. Concrete mixing tubs from building supply stores also make good water trays, and they're generally less than ten dollars.
    Look for small fountain pumps and the like. I don't come across them as often as the big pond-sized ones, but they're out there. If you find a smaller pump and there's still too much flow, you can always connect multiple hoses and divert some of the output elsewhere, like to other plants, or just back into your reservoir. You'll see offerings for live Sphagnum on the trade board from time to time - it's not too hard to come by.
    Thanks for the link, NaN - that's one of the best threads we have for the subject. For emphasis:

    sounds great. I think I now have everthing except the large pot, and more importantly, the darlingtonia.
