Dear All,

The one plant I have systematically failed to grow over the years is
Darlingtonia. It is now 10 years or so since I dispatched my last
victim, so I have the urge to try again. (Who knows, I may be a
better grower now??).

Does anyone, preferably in the UK, have a small plant they would
be prepared to offer up as a victim, sale or trade? And any growing
hints? I have a wild scheme to find a polystyrene container which
will fit the pot snugly and prevent the roots from overheating - see,
I'm getting desperate!
