    Soil mix? Define soil mix....as it gets warmer in spring your going to need to figure out how you are going to cool it's roots down... Darlingtonia need cool roots.

    I'm shocked to find out that Lowe's would have Darlingtonia! Besides the fact that they're difficult to maintain (or, at least, that's my limited understanding), I thought were rather difficult to find...

    Are these seedlings?

    The Darlingtonia instructional video on the DVD by Jacob Farin and Jeff Dallas actually suggests using a sort of "dripper" hooked up to a water pump, which essentially provides a constant flow of water to keep roots constantly cooling... If memory serves, they recommended pool supply stores to find some of this equipment...?

    Good find! Very good luck to you!
