Have you tried putting ice cubes on the pots of your
Darlingtonia? I got this tip from Peter d'Amato at California Carnivores.
I have used it a few times during hot spells here. Don't really know if
it helped, but the plants are still growing. Peter's suggestion was to
just place a few ice cubes on the surface of the planting mix when it's
hot. The cubes melt slowly and the cold water drips through the pot.
Obviously, it's hard to keep putting ice cubes on the pot all day when
you have to go to work, but it might be worth trying.
