    Hello,
    I have been growing D. californica for a few years now. I use 50/50 perlite and peat moss in a terracata 8" pot. They are grown year around outside, which is not hard to do since I live in Western Washington; just north of their native habitat. The plants are top watered when the weather is hot (above 80 F). The results are satisfactory. They do flower and produce offshoots from stolons.

    I have one that isn't really getting much bigger, but is holding on. It gets purple patches on the pitchers that look like they might be some kind of fungus, but it seems to do okay, anyway. It has gotten a bit dry a few times, but in spite of that i noticed today that there is a baby plant in next to the parent! Grows in a 3" unglazed pot under lights.

    Mine has the "sprawl" problem, too - all the pitchers grow horizontally.
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    Darlingtonia grow quite slow , the purple pathes are'nt fungus its just the colaration , and darlinonia usually grow horizontally for a while until they get more mature .

    Is the white, "dusty" layer that always appears at the middle of the purple patches part of the plants normal behavior, too?

    I grow Darlingtonia, I live in western Oregon pretty close to where they grow wild. I'm lucky, they almost grow like weeds. Last year I had pitchers three feet tall. This year they were attacked by aphids so all the pitchers were deformed.

    Hello,
    A little update, my plants have grown nicely all year long outside. My largest pitcher is only 10 inches tall, but I think that for it basicaly split growth points, now it has 4 or 5 growth points out of the mother plant.I also have a few smaller plants, and traded a smaller one that i grew from seed. I think now I have 7 individual plants. Maybe I could trade some.....
