I received some new plants today, S. purpurea and D. californica (finally!) I can't say that I am displeased!
Mmmm... Sensuous cobray lily...
More than I was hoping for.
Way more than I was hoping for! Is this a flower stalk trying to come up? 8O
I was really surprised with the size of this plant. The forming flower stalk and the state of the pitchers makes me think that it wasn't quite into dormancy yet.
So any suggestions on how to grow this Darlingtonia?
Should I put it outside? It's kind of cool here, it's been going between the low thirties to about forty - freezing at night a bit... Is that maybe too cold for a plant that came straight from Northern California?
