    How hot can Darlingtonia get? My summer temps indoors are 85day/72night. I had 3 this winter but traded them off after my custom-built Darlingtonia icing unit did not work well. I think they got too-much water. Then when it dried alittle the plants did not like it.

    I didn't save mine...but it was doomed anyway. It was at a lowe's. I tried. I have a few rare/very rare plants here, and they are all fine. Nodding Trillium, Cardinal Flower, Wild Quinine, Kitten Tails, Sullivant's Milkweed, Poke Milkweed, Whorled Milkweed, etc. Darlingtonia was just not happy! I put the blame on it's rough childhood.

    I did not know that Nodding Trillium and Cardinal Flower were rare.

Will you bow down to me some time just for yucks so I know what it's like? I have wanted a plasma tv for a while now but am too cheap to buy one. If I hop in that pot that your Darlingtonia recently vacated will I be treated like a happy fun ball?
    Ok. If you insist...next time I come over I will bow. But only if Audrey the Great Dane does, too. I will bow really low for some of your world famous artichoke dip. Maybe you could use my Darlingtonia for garnish.

    Tell DH you need a plasma TV, dangit! I tell mine that all the time. "honey, I would like satellite TV with Tivo." Eventually, it will sink in.

    If you can fit into the pot the Darlingtonia was in...I will treat you like happyfunball. I will also call the circus. April

    Nodding Trillium (Trillium cernuum) is somewhat beyond threatened and endangered. I think that's a 10 on the Swink scale. The Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis) is up there too at around a 7. Those are quite rare as are the others she mentioned. I am thinking the Kittentails (Wulfenia bullii) are extirpated in these areas. Those would by far be the rarest. Well, the Asclepias exaltata may be extirpated by now too.

    April, you have Sullivant's Milkweed? Where is it planted? In your woodland garden somewhere? Be specific. I'm coming over with night vision goggles and a spade to get me some of that.

    It was John Cleese as a Frenchman, taunting Arthur and his men. Arthur and crew end up getting a cow catapaulted onto them.

    Sample taunt:
    "your mother is a hamster and your father smells of elderberries"
