    I don't know if the Darlingtonia will really need that cooling system if it's going to be grown indoors. I don't think it will ever get that hot.

    I live in a mild climate, so I guess I can get away with murder, almost, with these plants. I have killed several, but I got two now in a huge 10 inch glazed pot that are doing quite well. I do put them in the house during a heat wave, and they seem to appreciate the break.

    While reading issues of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter from the 70s it says that Leo Song and other determined that 21C was the maximum root temperature that this species will tolerate. As long as you keep the root temperatures below 22C the air temperatures could be significantly higher. How you keep the root/soil temperatures low enough is a matter of choice affected mainly by the growing environment. What works in the high desert of the southwestern United States may not work for someone in Malaysia.

    The mountain populations have an affinity for serpentine seeps while the coastal groups can usually be found in Sphagnum bog with water flow. The roots may want oxygen which they'll get less of in standing water.

    Of course, it helps to EDIT first, before hitting "post"--- "hose" should be "house".

    I found a nifty temp conversion chart, for those permanently stuck in Fahrenheit: http://lancaster.unl.edu/food/ciq-celsius.shtml
