Greetings All!

Has anyone come across a good cultivation method for growing Darlingtonia
AND keeping the roots cool while doing so? I'm trying to come up with a
way to do this WITHOUT resorting to freon coils or constant ice packing,
etc., etc. There must be a way to utilize evaporation to keep the root
cool enough during a hot summer.

I am currently growing Sarracenia under a grape arbor with great success
as it is a fairly humid environment. I'm think of trying some
Darlingtonia here as well.

How about growing them in a clay pot in water with something wrapped
around the pot to increase evaporation?

Any ideas?

BTW I live in So. Calif about 3 miles form the ocean.
