    Darlingtonia from mass/Lowes UPDATES!

    Hey everyone, I can't find any picture updates of the plants that mass was kind enough to put into our hands so here I'm starting one for all of us to share our updates. My plants arrived looking pretty good...




    Here they are like 2 days later and falling over/drying up




    And here is what I have going on now







    So, lets see your updates!

    Those look like they have the potential to get big. Congratz! My cobras are just barely waking up for the season. (They also aren't from this batch so I guess my updates would be irrelevant to this thread.)

    This is my first time having Cobras grow (cept the tiny seedlings I have going) Should I unpot these and toss the whole ball into a bigger pot with LFS or somethin? Or just leave them in these tiny pots. I kinda didn't expect them to do anything. lol

    Some folks in the know say that shallow, wide containers are sufficient Andy, but I like to use really big ones - deep as well as wide. My plant that I got from a nursery as an adult is in a ~25 gallon pot, two feet tall by two feet wide, round. LFS is good but put something hard and porous in there with it, like lava rock or Hydroton. The chunkier the better, I think. In lower parts of the mix, peat and perlite can be useful for increasing moisture retention, but the upper half needs to be airy and resistant to compaction.

    It's usually better to oversize the pots. The stolons like lots of room and larger pots take longer to warm up.
