I haven't come across anyone in central Florida who has been able to keep
Darlingtonia alive outside of a refrigerated box! Some growers tell about
starting the seeds in cool conditions, and then allowing an ice block to
melt and drip onto/into the soil around the plant, but eventually they miss
a scheduled ice renewal and the plants are gone. I have never tried it
