    Question Sickly Darlingtonia ?

    Does this little Cobra look in poor health? I have had him outside in the pond he doesn't look like he is growing and the heads on some look kind of see thru or thin idk.

    Most plants inside growing w/vigor. Could just be in my head. Hard to find pic's to compare it to.

    So I thought I'ed ask the experts

    Thnx

    Could it just have not yet come out of dormancy? The "heads" are usually see-through, so I don't think that is a problem. Are you able to find a growing point? Sometimes it takes a while until plants come back from dormancy.

    Is that a new pitcher in the middle with the yellow top?
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    It sure looks like one to me. The lighter color and flattened hood seem to suggest that it is still developing.

    Sorry, I did not read correct, I read 'new picture', but it clearly says 'new pitcher'

    Yes that on and a small one on the back side.

    Well my Darlingtonia are still dormant as are some of my Sarracenia and Dionaea. Plants grown indoors have a totally different set of environmental cues and conditions so you're comparing apples to oranges.

    That Darlingtonia looks great compared to mine. Mine is just starting to wake up and most of the tops of the pitchers are dead. Also the tops of the pitchers are supposed to be translucent. It's part of the trapping mechanism.
    Is it the mountain or coastal form?
