    Only temporarily. You live in NC right? Why not grow them outside in full sun during the warm months?

    if you live in NC then you could grow it outside year round! those roots can survive even in freezng temps

    yep. capensis is like a dandelion of CPs. it'll grow during any time of warm wather and if it gets cold it'll die down and once it gets warm come back from its roots...you may get several plants from this!

    I have several bogs gardens filled with Sarracenia and Dionea.
    So I'll transplant a few of my Capensis (those that manage to survive)
    into the bog this fall.
    Thanks Again.

    Ooh, be careful about putting them in the bog. Once you turn them loose, they'll be pretty hard to remove. D. capensis is extremely prolific and would probably have no problem crowding out your smaller plants. Better to keep them in a pot; that way they won't get out of control, and as a bonus you can take them indoors during the winter rather than having them die back each year.
