    Hmmm, good news for me as I remember my roots being darker, can't recall russet brown or black, but thanks.

    Good luck with it, and nice stuff as always

    Kyewt! I didn't get a flower this year, and it went through a proper dormancy, like the VFT's & Sarracenias.

    I own a Darlingtonia since last year.
    The mother plant has not yet developed any new pitcher since last winter, but there are some new sideshoots growing:



    Perhaps I should use better winter protection in my climate.

    Hmmmm, I already have 2 mature pitchers, despite my sarras being quite late I wonder why darlingtonia are so expensive... they seem to put out so many baby plants via stolons?

    Perhaps the prohibitive price has something to do with a plant species which can take upwards of a decade to reach flowering maturity; that, and it is also a close second to flytraps as the most often killed carnivorous plant -- so far as I can tell. My plants, like yours, put out its fair share of stolons and I have grown them successfully for years; but our weather in Northern California has been a bit unusual -- the so-called La Nina pattern -- and everything seems a bit out of whack. The Sarracenia, though, are doing fine . . .

    Here's a quick survey of mine. I took a lot of divisions this year.

    Warren, you've been far more dedicated than I have been this season. Impressive . . .

    Hmmmm, that pattern is going to give us heavy rain until ~24th of June. Gah. Our weather has been a bit weird here too- coldest winter followed by hottest spring, except for where I live it alternated between 10C and 25C every few days. I'm blaming the cold winter on the Sarras being later this year though. Shame people kill them so much! Although, maybe cephs rival the 'most killed plant'? I suppose they both carry a hefty price tag, either way.
