    Yeah. That's where I got my Cube of Deaths. But the two in a 10 mile radius have NOTHING. I was so sad!

    Well no one said this was an easy species to grow in your climate. It may not be impossible, just difficult. And it may depend on the clone you have. One article in an early issue of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter mentioned that Leo Song and others determined that this species had a maximum root temperature limit (I want to say 28C/82.4F). If the root temperature got above that the plants would die.

    Availability from the West Coast nurseries is definitely cyclical. Two or three years ago these plants were as scarce as they are now. The next year there was plenty.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    They didn't even have a dying VFT in the back corner. No CPs period, and it's not like they were just sold out. No one's seen them. I was ready to cry!

    I'm aware it's not easy. I feel up until now, I've done a great job, as it did live for a couple of years. I guess with the global warming thing this year was just too hot, even with ice cubes. I'll probably grow it on a windowsill, or under a light in our slightly cooler lanai.
