Here are pics of my collection as it stands right now, there's pretty well a pic of everything, as long as it's a plant, except I didn't take pics of ALL the Darlingtonia seedlings, as there are just too many. XD

Outdoor collection:
S. Pupurea #1, this came yesterday, and the lids of two of the pitchers (one on this one, one on the other) had been ripped off. :(

This little guy has been EXTREMELY vigorous growing for me, it came from one of the larger dormant growing 'kits' from Lowe's.

The Pink Venus pot.  :)  There's actually a fourth "strike" down there in the pot, but I couldn't get a good pic of it, and didn't want to disturb it.

This is one of my first Death Cube rescues!  Originally the two dying leaves was all there was to this plant.  It's come a LONG way.

Although not as tall as the first Sarracenia seedling, this one is putting up pitchers FAST!  Anyone know what kind of Sarracenia this is?

The small cluster is the other dormant plant from the growing kit from Lowe's, and the lankiner one is a new addition as of a couple of days ago.  The browning occurred after it was resting on the side of the pot and it got really hot, so I moved him over.

Very nice. You are gonna have quite the collection when those seedlings mature. I have always wanted a darlingtonia but I have heard they a nightmare to grow. Is this true in your experience?

So far they've been really easy, honestly. I just sowed the seeds, kept the LFS moist, and I mist everything in the mornings when I check water levels. They've done the rest themselves.

You have a great set up! Have you ever considered putting more LFS into your pots? I believe I see a walmart self-watering pot in some of your photos. I use those, but I fill the media until it is about 1/2 inch from the top of the pot. It will make your media dry out slower and also maximize the amount of light your plants get due to the fact the sides of your pot wont block some sun from hitting your plants.

I will probably add to them when I repot this fall or in the spring. I plan on condensing my collection, but they're growing so well right now I don't want to set them back.

Incidentally, I have several of the Walmart self watering pots, I love them for these guys! They do great in them!

I had heard you have to keep the roots cooler than the top of the plants and that they were really finicky about a number of other growing issues. Let me know as they age they look amazing.

From reading, its more important to make sure they have water and develop a good root system. The seedlings outside seem to be doing well, and they're in fill sun 90+ degree heat daily.

Well, seeing as my phone refuses to let me update with more pics, I'll do it as a second post!

In the FTS Fuzzy Tooth pics, the damage was caused by the USPS. One leaf ended up cracked, and one trap broke off. :( It really surprised me too, as they were extremely well packed. It looked as if the postal workers had violently shaken the box, as some tape was literally torn away, and I also had ordered some live LFS. Regardless, I'm very happy with them, thank you Matt and Leah!!!

Also pictured are some of my rescues, the long leafed one is very recent, hence the sunburn. The three Pink Venuses, and the rescued S. Pupureas.

They look great! Sorry to hear that they were damaged upon arrival, but the broken traps will be a distant memory once they put out some new growth :)

No worries! I know they'll take off once they get settled in, if the Pink Venuses are any indication, so I'm looking forward to seeing all the little fuzzy traps they put out for me! XD Thanks again, you guys have such awesome plants!
