    Hi CP Sinc,
    You can read my response in 'Growing Cobra Pitchers' in the topic next to this one.

    Basically, repot Darlingtonia in Feb/March just before growth recommences and for compost, I have had success with a base mix (2/3 of the pot height with Peat: perlite 3:1 with a live planting of Sphagnum moss on top. The potting mix should be semi firm, but taking care not to crush the brittle roots. Then is a good time to remove the runners or stolons to create further divisions of your plant.
    After potting all the plants up, water from above standing in a tray of rain or distilled water with a rose fitted to the spout of the can.
    Do this once a day and your plants placed in a cold greenhouse will love you to bits [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
