I use light blue pots for Heliamphora, Darlingtonia and Drosera regia. I feel it really helps.
I think I still have the blue one that you sent one of my Heliamphora
in. This plant is now so big that it's in a large white ceramic pot on my kitchen windowsill.

Don't people feel clay pots work? If you want to drop below ambient temps at the roots?
I currently have a H. pulchella in a tall clay pot on my windowsill and it seems to be doing ok. I would imagine that a bit of evaporative cooling takes place.

It figures if you think about it, VFT's roots in the wild wouldn't ever get as hot as they do in a black plastic pot in the sun in a greenhouse.
Typically sub-surface will be cooler than above ground in nature.
