    we have a stream/creek on our property in the mountains of N. ga. i tested the dirt to see if it bubbled in vinegar, nope. the stream feeds a lake/pond in front of our house and live sphagnum grows on the edges. is it OK to go ahead and plant an entire pot of darlingtonia on the bank of the stream so the roots will stay cool? i was thinking i could dig a hole and just plop the whole thing in there. or atleast sat the pot in the water.

    thanks

    That doesn't sound like a bad idea, just take care not to let it set seed or otherwise escape into the wild. Or wash downstream. :)

    Certainly, in the wild, Darlingtonia grow along and in streams. Here in northern California, Darlingtonia is used as a landscaping plant, often partially submerged in artificial streams or ponds. For example, here is Darlingtonia at the United Indian Health Services building in Arcata. The plants have been happily established there for several years and flower every spring.

    How do they cope with the tap water I assume they are using and nutrients via fish waste in the water?

    LOL! I is here! My situation was that I had pots loosely sitting in bigger containers, that got lifted up and carried away. I would think that a truly rooted plant would fare better than mine. Good luck / skill!
