    Darlingtonia outta dormancy

    My Darlingtonia has been slumbering in the garage since last December or so. It was just awoken from sweet dreams of dining at the bug buffet, so it doesn't have any new growth yet from this year.

    A shot from above the 13 inch pot it is potted in


    And another shot on a cool 6C and overcast day here

    You lucky guy! I have only found one clone of Darlingtonia to even *grow* here...

    Thanks guys,

    Clue I grow this plant in the basement under a 42 watt CFL. I'd try it outside, but I'd be afraid that the deer, skunks or the rabbits would eat it. Plus with the coyotes around here having acquired a taste for vegetables...they dig up our rows of carrots and eat them...that's just too many variables on the table to deal with.

    In some parts of Darlingtonia's range, they're called "deer licks"....
