    @eou812: do you know what plagiarism is? because you just committed it. If you do not have any personal experience regarding growing CPs, it might be better in many instances just to not say anything it at all.

    So that's about it hope it will help anyone who needs help with there Cobra's or there new Cobra's!

    @amph - Lolololol.

    I'm worried about mine. I have it outside and the substrate appears to be frozen solid. The plant doesn't look dead or anything... I just don't know what to do with it.

    It would most likely be too warm inside, too much of a shock to take it from freezing to indoor temps I would think... But if I leave it outside, it will definitely freeze harder in the oncoming weeks.

    Hmm...

    It seems like they get their shipments of CPs for winter. It was last winter that I got my Judith Hindle at Lowe's. I had my own "is dormancy worth it this year?" post.

    I put my Lowe's Darlingtonia under my lights. I'm going to repot it soon so I can perhaps care for it water-wise in a way closer to how it likes.

    Where did the original text come from? I have it saved because it's great, and I'd like to credit it properly.

    So could growers in the easter seaboard put an aquarium air stone in the water trays? while having a mix that drains well?

    Since it's copy/pasted from another CP nursery's website, he may have a dilemma about posting it here... (against the rules I believe?)

    I would not give it dormancy because most of the plants from lowe's are not healthy (but some are) and are not ready to go through cold weather most likley if you do it would die. i would start growing it under lights unless you live in zone 10 or greater.

    Then you could grow it outside.
