    Huh, I've never seen Darlingtonia's famed 'stolons' before. They look really cool.

    Good growing to get them that far.

    Lucky you! It's not every person who can even grow Darlingtonia, much less do what you have! I know I sure couldn't.

    Sadly cobra lilies are just too sensitive to certain conditions for me to grow them.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    You wouldn't know it, but I was a laughingstock on this forum for all my failed experiments with this species. Strangely, although it had a 'proper dormancy', it didn't flower. First pitcher of the season looks gnaryly, now, but here's what it looked like a couple months ago:

    I try not to bite off more than I can chew when it comes to plants. Which is why I always ask around about them before I get them, that way I don't end up with plants I can't care for.

    From the Reader's digest Quotable Quotes: "Hindsight is 20-20... the rest is legally blind." I overcame my cobra lily woes. Same with a few other challenging species. OTOH, I don't have Nepenthes anymore, or tuberous sundews or Helis.
