Report WOWWW! I have purchased a GIANT darlingtonia! in Darlingtonia Posted October 1, 2012 Mine does not recover. Don´t know why. A friend of mine who lives near me also bought another Darling at the same time as me, and happened the same. The plant started to seem more and more burned and not making new pitchers. I grow mine in pure Sphagnum and top watered with rainwater. Hello, As for me, I also ordered a large Darlingtonia. Nowadays it isn't in good condition, so it is dying... I don't know why, because the conditions are suitable for the plant. I grow mine in pure peat and watered with rainwater.
