    Cool Darlingtonia!

    Hey guys I just thought I would start this thread because:

    1. Cobra Lilies are amazing.
    2. I don't see too many pics of them.

    So feel free to post any pics in the wild, in culture, in tissue culture...whatever.

    I'll start it off with the first one I've grown, which I got on Christmas. It seems to be happy:

    New Pitcher:


    There was some crud on the lens which I thought added a cool effect


    Baby new Pitcher

    More of the baby:



    I'll post some more soon maybe even a progression... I'm looking forward to seeing responses (hopefully with pics )

    Awesome pics! I was away for the last couple of days, and that new pitcher grew like crazy. I'll update with pics really soon.

    I've come to really like them as well! The one pictured has been growing for 13 months straight inside.

    Have you guys ever seen these mutant pitchers:


    The one in the left background

    The "mutant" leaves are just juvenile pitchers, typical on seedlings and stolon offshoots.

    Here are a few shots of Darlingtonia in the wild in the Sierra Nevada:









    EDIT: And one more of yours truly at a small Darlingtonia seep in Del Norte County, CA.
