    I thinned them out last year and this winter I had to do a bit of pitcher lopping to try and get rid of tortrix moth.
    Otherwise yes they are as was, Darlingtonia I find are very easy to grow.
    I've had a few plants in a tray for a couple of years so they could do with planting into a double tray as the others, that would look the same next year. Darlingtonia "Othello" is sending out multiple runners too so may need planting up into a large tray.

    Very impressive, Fred. I need to make the three our drive South to see them in the wild.

    This is the new planting taken from a single gravel tray up to a double gravel tray. I have used several species of Sphagnum in the planting, we don't want boring monocultures do we

    Hello,

    Darlingtonia country is supreme. These are not the best photos of Darlingtonia, but I think they give you an image of the habitat if you haven't visited.

    Fist sized plants submerged by snowmelt, early spring:


    The extraordinary Woodcock Bog. This site has so many plants in such a large area, it's hard to get an informative picture.


    Another view:


    My favorite swimming hole, still early spring (i.e., June), in southern Oregon:


    The same site:

    This is a young Othello that emerged on May 16th.



    I've transfered the colony to a double tray over the past couple of days so here's the same plant after 3 months.
