    Are those little things on the side the vestigial leaves?

    Yep, that's a stolon. Expect to see much more of them in the future and more mature leaves next season

    Yay! Darlingtonia is proving to be much easier to grow than I expected!

    With any plant if you hit the sweet spot for their growing conditions they'll thrive. However one growing season does not a growing success make. Pat yourself on the back after you've kept a perennial going for at least two full growing cycles.

    I also think the stock of plants going around are much better genetically than say 10 years ago. Less tissue cultured plants, more divisions from plants grown in cultivation 10+ years. And a lot less poached plants on the market. Plants taken directly from the wild seldom survive in cultivation.

    Suprising... I love it when plants do strange things like this!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    That's so cool. How are you growing this? Is it outside? Terrarium with refrigerated dormancy?
