I decided to get a Darlingtonia californica today at the SF Botanical Garden (aka Strybing Arboretum), partly was because they were selling really nice plants at a good price. A friend who volunteers at SFBG also told me that when he bought one he was told to avoid too much sun (he lives in...
I am making a trip down to California for a family thing in June this year. I am planning on staying an extra couple of days and see if I can drive down to couple of mountain sites for some trekking and spotting some D. californica populations in the wild. I will be around 1h 45min...
SO, I recently repotted this plant. Did i left too much of the plant outside? The part in question is where it's red. It wasn't red before and I think it might be sunburnt. Should I plant it deeper into the pot?

Jeremiah Harris and I decided to check out the Harvard Museum of Natural History yesterday. There is a vast mineral collection on display as well as an array of stunning fossils, skeletons and Victorian era taxidermy specimens from around the world. In this diverse collection of natural wonders...
I decided to take the plunge and create my own picture thread :-D I have been growing CP's for three years and to say it has become an addiction would be an understatement....
I have always enjoyed everyone's pictures so I figured I would add to them.
Three short years ago...
Wish I had actual plants to offer, but this'll have to do for now.

One packet of Darlingtonia with no designation of whether it's a coastal or mountain variety.

In April 2010 I was walking to the top of campus at SFSU and passed by the University green house. They were having a plant sale and I decided to check it out. I ended up purchasing a Sarracenia x readii and had no idea what I was getting myself into or how I would get swept up with the...
I have limited space for carnivorous plants, but for those who are interested, this is my list. I kind of like my plants bloody, red, and dangerous looking. I also have regular house plants, but I'm definitely not listing those as there are too many.

I have around 300+ sarracenia seeds that I have in the fridge ( in a ziploc bag with a napkin and some in a ziploc bag and spaghmom moss ). I've tried to grow a Venus flytrap and darlingtona californica but failed :/ kinda brought my confidence down. So know I'm wondering if I can get some tips...
One of my seedling D. californica has been producing mature pitchers for a while, the only one out of around 50 or so that has yet to produce the snake pitchers, and has begun showing some color.
Hopefully soon the rest will follow suit, and considering they're growing in relatively low...
