    Now, these are all certified non-GMO Darlingtonia. Right, Fred?

    I'm a law abiding citizen so I couldn't possibly have GM plants

    That is truly inspiring Fred!
    What kind of growing tips can you offer? Mine seems to grow for a short period in the spring, then stop for the rest of the year.
    Media mixes, temps, light, water levels, humidity, etc. etc..
    What's GM/GMO mean?

    Possibly the best advice I can give is to move to the UK.

    I grow my Darlingtonia in shallow gravel trays, sizes from half to 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.
    Colour of the trays in not important.

    Media is pure live Sphagnum or Live Sphagnum/perlite depending on how much Sphagnum I have available at the time. The plants don't seem to care.

    As for temperatures I did a little study last year and the raw data is here http://floridacpsociety.proboards.co...a-temperatures.

    I have 30 or so thermometers in the Darlingtonia house, both digital and analogue, so I have a fair idea what's happening at any time. with both air and root temperatures. Humidity I don't really monitor although there are a couple of hygrometers in there.

    I flood the trays every two or three days in the growing season so the water never goes below approximately 1" (2.5cm) and in winter I keep the Sphagnum happy, never allowing it to dry.

    The Darlingtonia house is positioned in the sunniest part of my garden.
