    Darlingtonia's are a pain in the neck. Only their beauty saves them. Darlingtonia require water to drip/run over the rootstock fairly constantly if it is to survive. If the water is cold (50 F, to 65F) the plant will pick right up and begin to show you what it can do. Yours is in decline, and you better fix it now.

    Bugweed,

    Will putting an ice cube(made from RO water, of course) one the edge of the pot suffice? Or maybe putting it in a large saucer with ice cubes to melt in the saucer?

    Regards,

    Joe

    hmmm iv always thought and wondered what if u put darlingtonias in a hydroponic system with no fertilizer in it, jus RO water. also, u can put an bag of ice cube or something to cool the water down. do u guy think that ould work? i have a hydroponics system and have orchids in them, but im gonna change them into a semihydroponics system. i was thinking to use the hydroponics system for darlingtonias for a while now.
    you guys think it will work?

    I think that would work well, I would use perlite or something for the substrate.
