Hi LF

I will second flcatchers comments regarding the compost, adding that I find Darlingtonia works better in a more peat biased substrate and they do say to use white (sun reflective) pots and keep the roots cool on them (Darlingtonia), but if you have a container with sufficient mass or bury it to three quater depth, it shouldnt be a problem.

Good luck

Cheers

Steve
