    Darlingtonia doing great!!

    I got this plant last summer and all it did last year was produce about five 2" pitchers. So this year I was plesantly surprised about how large the pitchers are!! Its been growing in a 1:1:1:1 peat, orchidbark, LFS, coarse, perlite mix without any special treatment out on my patio so I'm very happy with the results! I think this is another CP that has a bad reputation for being hard to grow but so far (for me at least!) its been as easy a a VFT or a sarracenia

    Heres a pic from a few weeks ago....


    And today....

    the largest pitcher is about 12" tall with my hand for scale


    and it looks like there are more coming!


    and for Adam, Sarracenia flava


    Thanks for looking!
    Good Growing!

    Very nice! On mine, the first two pitchers of the season are always the largest, with the others being somewhat smaller. What happened to the appendages that hang down from the lid? Mine have very long appendages.

    I. Am. Jealous. The plant I received had scale and died not a week later, with only one leaf still alive I am trying to root to no avail. Hoepfully my seeds will do well, because that is one spectacular specimen.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
