Hi all,

I got a few darlingtonia C. othello seeds a while ago and sowed them and one sprouted. That was a few months ago. Now, it is growing ok and is about a cm tall. My question is can I keep it in my tank and let it skip its first dormancy or should I aclimate it to outside life? Any advice would me much apreciated.

Yep, you can let it skip dormancy. When the time comes to put it outside in a year or two, just aclimatise it gradually and it'll be fine.

Can this advice be applied to Sarracenia too?

Yes you can skip the dormacy for Darlingtonia and for Sarracenia, for Dionaea seedlings, too.

Thanks! I guess it will be staying in the tank for a while!
