    There is no such thing as too many

    It's not my fault honest. The plants was hanging over the edge of one of the colonies and just not in a good place.
    I had to replant it in a half tray.



    I refuse to mention the other half tray that 'someone' planted up

    How big are the half trays you mention, Fred? Curiosity is asking.

    I love the contrast on this clone and others you have posted... Presumably the same clone, I guess. How many clones do you have in cultivation now?

    It's based on a normal seed tray size, two half trays 8 x 6 x 2" will fit inside one.

    This is a half tray, the smallest I use, good for bringing on smaller plants.



    This is a double tray ( X4 larger), the largest I use.





    The above is my Colony No3 just after retraying, it doesn't look like that any more

    My main 'clone' is the original I bought when I started with CPs, I have three large colonies of that plus all the extras (cough*). Appearance does alter within a colony, depending on position. I have noted that plants are sold in the USA stating the spirality of the pitchers, well I have both, clockwise and anticlockwise, in the same colony.
    Others include Othello, one from Siuslaw and a 'Giant'.
    A good all red still escapes me. Many have the colouration as small plants but it fades as the pitcher size gets to maturity.

    Even in my youth in the CP world i am very interested in trying to grow these. Especially after reading your thread about the myths. I'm in Charlotte, NC do you think that our weather is too harsh for these? I think it's zone 7b

    KKPsi08, I think you're 7a but I'd still certainly give it a try. They are regarded as as tough as old boots where cold temperatures are involved.

    Just to try and clarify, here's a photo of the three tray sizes I use

    Small black = Half tray
    Green = Standard seed/ gravel tray
    Large black = Double tray



    I hope this helps

    Note:- The start of the tapes are at the tray edge, it's the angle of the shot that makes them look like they're overhanging.

    So you just fill the tray with Live Sphagnum Moss and plant the Darlingtonia straight in. No sand or perlite? No drainage holes either?

    Correct

    Occasionally I may add some perlite, it depends how much live sphagnum I'm prepared to use.
