I would also keep the plant shaded by my other plants. If outdoors are not acceptable here in Florida, could I grow it on...

    Darlingtonia from Seed

    So with a slow day at work, I thought I'd do a random bit of research about Cobra Lilies. I wouldn't mind picking one up to grow alongside my Sarracenias, someday, anyway.
