Hi,

Just got my baby Othello today.
Posted Image
I was reading up on it and Barry Rice seems to indicate it prefers lower temperatures over winter. Any body got any advice on special treatment for this cultivar?

Many thanks,

SNAP - I've just got mine today aswell - about the same size as yours. I bet we got them from the same place !!!

I keep mine in an unheated greenhouse all year round. Not too hot in the summer, if it's really hot I leave them outside for a few months. I've grown them for many years so it works for me.. good luck.

Is yours German by any chance? :sun_bespectacled:

That's what I was going to do. Basically same as an ordinary Darlingtonia. It was just that Barry Rice records that Othello discovered in an area subject to snow in winter, so should they be left outside all year round?

Good growing to you as well.

Othello is a really nice plant, and in fact my own plant seems quite vigorous. Next March I'm going to repot it in a nice fat Tomatoe pot I think. There'll be a few good divisions from it, it's simply outgrowing it's pot.
