    Hey all,
    I just got some Darlingtonia seeds. I tried this plant once before, but i was living in an un-A/C house. I tried to move them to a new location (while i was moving to a new state) but i didnt get to it in time. It roasted. However, i just got some seeds, and i was looking for some advice on when to plant them, what soil, if they should go in a terrarium while young, temperature, and light? In other words... any advice would be great... UNLESS YOUR STUPID!!!

    Anytime. At this point in the game, you just need to get something going here.

    Equal parts peatmoss and perlite / pumice.

    Haven't tried it, but I don't recommend it unless you got a basement where it gets cool at night.

    You don't need any temps greater than 80F that's for sure. As for light, they don't need as much as Sarracenia for instance, but they DO need high light levels.

    Hope that helps, and best of luck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
