Hi,
I've only got one Sarracenia, which has been in the ground for a couple of years, but I'm trying Darlingtonia from seed this year and would like to get more.

ive been growing darlingtonia for a few years now but they do take years to get to an impressive size. i have some 3 year olds that are about an inch tall :( i got frustrated and just bought a few plants but lost the lot last summer! it was just to hot for them!

Anyone else grow Drosophlum? the best smelling plant in the world :lol:
