I've never had any luck growing Darlingtonia outside here in Georgia (go figure, with our 95 degree summers...lol).

This year, I tried something new. I bought one of the 3" pots at Lowe's and stuck it under my lamps in a tray of water with my Sarracenia seedlings. It is doing very well! I am getting 3 pitchers sent up at a time, no joke. I'm getting a bit of red in the hood and tongue. About a month ago, it sent a runner out and now there is a baby plant in the pot with it.

This has been going on for about 4 months. Supposing the wonder continues, I will just put the plant, pot and all, in a plastic bag and stick in the refridgerator for 3 months this winter and then put it back under the lamps.
