    You say, on the side of the POT there are two whitish pods?? This mystifies me. Hmmm...on pots left exposed in my garage small fuzzy white insect coccoons sometimes form. Am I on the wrong track? I must have misunderstood.

    Your darling may not be sending up growth if it doesn't have a strong root system. If these pod structures are on the plant itself, they could be fungal growths that indicate the plant is unhealthy or dead.

    Could you please describe these "pods" in more detail? Thanks.

    Yes, please keep us posted. Those pods sound very interesting. Do you think they are what's causing the plant to be unhealthy? Or could they be preying upon the plant, taking advantage of its poor health?

    The 'alien pods' would be a great macro-photography subject! :-)

    But wait a second...are you saying these pods are PART of the plant itself? Offshoots and not some sort of fungus? I'm knocked off my axis. [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hmm.....interesting. DE and everyone else Ceph here could have a very rare form of a Darlingtonia!!!! The one that makes a greenish-yellow flower instead of a purplish one. I saw a picture of it once I think it was in Galleria Carnivora perhaps.
