My first Darlingtonia & I need help please !!

by Lanz » Sun Jun 16, 2019 5:07 pm

This is my First Darlingtonia, and I have no idea why mine looks nothing like what I see online, is it healthy looking, are they supposed to be laid back kinda flat? Or standing up? Am I doing anything wrong? I water it with cool water for the roots & have trimmed all the pitchers that were browning. I’m just clueless at this point lol

Simple. It’s not a Darlingtonia. What it is is a Sarracenia psittacina

I was kinda feeling like it wasn’t because of how different it looked compared to photos Thankyou guys so much so what is it exactly? Do the same rules apply with this as regular trumpet pitchers?

I hope you weren't charged for a cobra plant.. idk how much that particular sarracenia costs, but darlingtonia aren't exactly a dime a dozen.
As for care, sarracenia are all cultivated similarly. Lots of sun. Lots of water. Lots of food.
