    Picked up a couple of death cube Darlingtonia today

    went to Lowes to buy some sphagnum moss and other potting materials, and came across a fresh order of CPs...in that, there were 2 darlingtonia, a cute small one and a pretty decent sized one....Since they are in active growth and our temps are now hitting pretty well below freezing at night, im just going to skip this dormancy and grow em under my lights.
    So here they are. lid is off of the death cube and i added some water to em to keep em happy.
    Also i have a couple pics of my Mountain form, still looks great even though its dormant now
    The smaller of the two from lowes

    the larger one

    group shot


    and now my baby that is headed into its second dormancy with me, a few of you have divisions of this plant....



    Sleeping space for the dormant Sarrs, VFTs, Dews, and Cobras...

    Hiya SK-

    In the last pic, is your LW's among them?

    If not, will we get to see a pic of your new rare sarrs?

    I bought a cactus. A week later it died. And I got depressed, because I thought, Damn. I am less nurturing than a desert.

    Those look like a nice acquisition Kriss
    Time will tell if they continue to develop pitchers that size.
    Also, your Sarracenia collection seems to be growing.
    Which reminds me... Still interested in my S. oreo (sand mtn) x leuco?

    Lol i was lucky to find those 2 darlingtonia like that, they had some healthy VFTs and sarrs too but i didnt have the $ to spend on all of that especially at this time of the year.

    i hope they live, id really like to see how they grow alongside my mountain form since the 2 from lowes are coastal.
