Thread: Darlingtonia

    My darlingtonia is sprouting babies all along the edge of the pot, they're about an inch high now. My question is, does anyone know approximately how long it takes for them to grow to maturity?

    This is what I grabbed from this site:
    http://www.geocities.com/cteichreb/Darlingtonia.html

    Propagation
    Darlingtoniacan be propagated through seed, stolon cuttings, division, and tissue culture.

    Seed and division are similar to Sarraceniaso can be referred to in that section. Seed is brown and bristly in nature to help disperse itself by catching rides in animals fur to be deposited elsewhere. Plants raised from seed may take up to 10 years to reach maturity!

    One of the unique things about Darlingtoniais it's massive production of plantlets through stolons. It sends out stolons during the growing season, which may exceed lengths of several feet. Eventually, the stolon stops growing and produces a new plantlet a the tip. Once rooted, this daughter plant can simply be cut off with a sharp knife and repotted. A full size plant can be obtained within a couple of years using this technique. If you do not remove the daughter plants, you will eventually have a container brimming with pitchers of all sizes and ages, a beautiful sight!

    Darlingtoniaseed can be sterilized and introduced into tissue culture as well.
