    Empty pod after empty pod here.

    The 'summer' was so relentlessly cold and wet here, it seems have affected seed production. Worst summer since 1956 here actually. Yuck!

    First pitcher is just dying off naturally due to old age.

    If you're getting deformed pitchers, it looks like an insect problem. Spray with insecticide.

    I think somebody got 2 or 3 seeds out of a flower once.

    Good luck, but the most likely scenario is going to be no seeds I'm afraid!

    Have you got a sarracenia?

    Treat the darlingtonia in exactly the same way.

    Forget keeping the roots cool. Complete myth IMO.
