🪰Have you heard about Darlingtonia?🐠 Hi CP (carnivorous plant) friends!! I was just doing some more research into one of my favorite insectivores - Darlingtonia Californica (Cobra Lillies). They're a type of pitcher plant that I wish I was able to grow here in Florida. They're even closely related to (my favorite) Sarracenia! In the carnivorous plant family Sarraceniaceae, there's 3 pitcher plants: Sarracenia, Darlingtonia, and Heliamphora. This post talks about Darlingtonia (might make a post on Heliamphora some other time). Darlingtonia are very unique. They're taller, like Sarracenia. The pitchers on Darlingtonia are almost like vertical Sarracenia Psitticina pitchers with an angelfish tail fin. On the back of the pitcher, there's opaque light windows (similar to some species of Sarracenia) They grow in a small part of the USA, that small part being extreme Northern California and Southern Oregon. Darlingtonia grow in/alongside constantly flowing streams of cold water mainly in the mountains (some are by the coast). When you try and grow a plant at your house, you try and mimic their natural habitat as well as you can. Well, the fact that Darlingtonia grows in streams with cold water makes it difficult to grow them. Their roots can't get hot - not ideal for Florida (or many places!). Their roots have to stay under 80°F (26°C). Many people that cultivate these plants have to come up with & construct designs to keep their roots a safe temp. They also use icecubes (distilled, RO, or rainwater of course) on really hot days. I saw a photo of a person who put the pots in the ground to help keep the roots cool. One day I'll be able to have a Darlingtonia.. One day! They appreciate cold, chilly nights - especially if daytime temperatures go over 90°F (32°C). Darlingtonia like partial to full sun. Partial sun would probably be easier to keep the root temperature under control. When watering the plant, you don't want it to sit in water. Instead, make sure to let the water drain through completely. Also, try to water the plants in early morning because the water will be cooler. Something interesting about Darlingtonia is that they grow in serpentine soils ("weathered ultramafic rock"). The serpentine soil that they grow in has higher concentrations of potentially toxic minerals, which many regular plants can't withstand. 60% peat moss & 40% coarse sand is a good soil mix in cultivation. I love these plants, and I hope everyone appreciates them as much as I do! I recommend researching them more, as they're truly interesting and I couldn't possibly fit everything into a single post. I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on them! https:// https:// https:// https:// https://. #cpclubthursday #carnivorousplants #carnivorousclub #pitcherplant #darlingtonia #plantaddict #plantsmakepeoplehappy #info #rareplants (Photo not mine)
