Last year I planted a little Darlingtonia that I got from its mother plant and in April 2010 it looked like this:

Then I transplanted it into a bigger pot and that baby became this (January 2011)

I had never seen a Darlingtonia growing like that, for me it was very fast, what do you think?

Hi Tuuagso, It is a little beauty, very pleasing to look at.
If you grew it from a stolon rather than from seed, they do tend (once established) to grow quicker than the equivalent seed grown plant.
Plus you obviously give it a lot of TLC.

I grow it indoors, low humidity could kill the pitchers outdoors so I grow it in my bathroom by the window where it can get the enough light and humidity it needs. It grows around 20~25°C at day and 15°C at night, it seems it likes warm temperatures at day as long it gets enough light.
