You have warranted my favourite exclamation!
That is a sexy beast of a Cobra!

Thanks Daniel

I wish it would start getting taller, but as long as it keeps putting out pitchers and stolons I'm not going to complain.

If we eastern people were able to keep darlingtonia outside in summer, that would be awesome! :) unfortunately with our heat here, Darlingtonia die instantly.
Hven't heard of anyone yet able to grow darlingtonia on the east coast outside year-round without a problem, anyone?

Great growing Jason! :)

I understand what you mean. I haven't tried growing it outside here for that same reason. Plus its still fairly small, 4" to 5" tall, and its my only one. I do have two smaller division from runners that are catching up in size quickly which I may try and separate when I repot it. Then next spring I might see how well one does in the shade rather then full sun. Still haven't decided yet, but its been thriving just being under lights at whatever humidity my house is, which is low.
