    Question about Darlingtonia californica

    SO, I recently repotted this plant. Did i left too much of the plant outside? The part in question is where it's red. It wasn't red before and I think it might be sunburnt. Should I plant it deeper into the pot?

    At this point it doesn't really matter. The plant is more or less dormant and those pitcher bases are toast anyway. If it bothers you wrap it with some long fiber sphagnum or paper or mound up the substrate. Darlingtonia only tolerate so much root disturbance before they get set back in their growth, so the less the better.

    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    one more question, does it hurt the plant if i don't cover the toasted part up? I mean i really don't care about aesthetics.

    Where is last season's growth? Those two remaining pitchers look like they're a couple of years old?

    SWEEEET i was hoping Sir fredg would respond. I bought this in September and it came with three pitchers, so i am not sure how old this are. But there hasn't been any new growth since it arrived.

    Not had it that long then. Remember the tallest pitchers will be the first of the new season. Give it some tlc and we hope it takes off for you.
