  1. Hi Picol, nice to meet another italian grower! I will definitely follow Podunk suggestions next time, and luckily I didn't started to use ice also on the other plants! Another thing that came to my mind, is to buy plants in the colder part of the year (or at least not in the hotter). In fact I remembered that the shipping company waited 3 days before handling the package, and during very hot days, this could have been lethal for a delicate plant like this one. I think I will wait to have some more experience before going with a second attempt, but I will definitely try another time. For now let's concentrate on drosera and nepenthes!
  2. Hi Podunk, thank you for your detailed answer, it is full of very useful informations. I will apply them from now on. I think the problem was the periodi I left it on the windowsill, right after it arrived. My setup was not ready yet and, as a coincidence, that period was very hot here in Italy. So probably even if the window was not receiving direct sun (except for a couple of hours), temperature between the window and the curtain could have reached something like 30°C. I will try to look at the rhizome nonetheless. Thanks again for your explanation!
  3. Dear everyone, I am new to the forum and I am looking for some help about Darlingtonia. I recently bought my first plant for this species. It arrived in a very good shape, and I had it for some time on the windowsill. Since in Italy now is very hot, I recently transferred it in my new terrarium, where I keep roughly 11 hour of light. Temperature in the house is almost constant around 25-26°C (I do not have air conditioning), but I spray the plant 3 times a day. I also add ice in its water pool two times a day. Nonetheless, the plant situation is the one you can see in the attached photo. The center of the plant seem rot, and I already cut some of the traps, which were almost completely dead. I do not get what I am doing wrong. Is there any hope for the plant? Do you have some help or suggestions? Thank you in advance!
  4. Hi everyone, new to the forum, found while searching for help about my Darlingtonia, the only plant I am having bit troubles growing. I am growing carnivorous plants since a year or so. I cultivate them inside, where I have two terrariums, one of them custom made. I am in the process of automating both of them with custom electronics, but this is a long story and I hope I will update you on this project very soon on another topic. Read you soon! Damiano
