Michael.

As shown in the pictures the plants are in 3" deep (approx) trays of live sphagnum.

Just now they are in full sun from 10am to 7pm ( approx again).

There is no shading of the plants or the sphagnum.
( I even clean the glass :D ).

Ok, thank you. I will try as you told me.
Maybe it also depends on the clone I'm cultivating. If i have no luck I will tell you. Then maybe one of you could offer me a young plant of your robust clones. :-)

Hi fredG

Question. What are your max temp's and low's for your cobra plants in your greenhouse? Do you leave them in there all year long? For the plants in the photos above. Also do you have any losses with them or do the thrive?

Thanks Andrew

Lose a Darlingtonia? :P
Not in the last 25 years

Before that I didn't have any to lose. :P

I think I answered the rest in PM Andrew

ok thanks for the quick response. I guess at times your greenhouse does hit 40 or even 50 on hot days. So does mine. I guess the overnight temp. drop helps them out quite a bit.

Thanks Andrew
