Very nice looking plants! Have you had them outside during any substantial heat yet? What techniques do you use to keep the roots cool? I have more luck growing Heliamphora than these plants. Nice work John.
First off, I grow the Mountain Variety. They can easily take daytime temps of 100 degrees or more as long as nights drop into the 60's. I just put a big chunk of RO ice in the pot on nights above 65 degrees or so.
The "PNW Pot" with Darlingtonia californica - Siskyou Mountains, Drosera rotundifolia - Skagitt Co, Drosera x anglica - Washington and soon to be Pinguicula macroceras in the open space in the front. Darlingtonia is not the easiest plant to grow in New England but, here's the proof that it can be done with minimal extra effort.
Spend your life doing weird things with strange people.
