    After reading about D. arcturi in the SG, and how Pete kinda failed at growing it since he couldn't keep it cold enough in winter, I wanted to try my luck with this plant, and see how it fares outside in my yard. I know this plant lives up high in mountains, which would mean virtually cloud-less summers, and grey, cold, snowy winters, which is a lot like where I live. Has anyone else grown this plant before? Does it like full sun? How long should dormancy be? I think Equilibrio Carnivorous Plants has some, so if they're pretty easy to grow, I'd like to try my luck at it.

    Many thanks,

    I don't think I've ever heard/read anyone call this plant 'easy'.

    Do a search on "arcturi" both here and cpuk and you'll get a good feel for the plant. Here's one:
    D. arcturi

    Also, Dean Cook has had this plant in the past...
    All the best,
