A few seed grown,seeds courtesy of Fred, they hopefully should pick up speed now I planted them in a milled sphagnum slush , they were sown on a peat based mix and maybe neglected a little these are the largest so far ,still tiny but slightly more developed
BCP usually has some Darlingtonia seed listed as coming from a hardy UK clone.
Not sure if that seed came from Fred or not, but last year a vendor from Belgium was selling the Fredg strain of Darlingtonia seeds, so I imagine that those initially began from material provided by Fred at some point in the past.
Best of luck with your seedlings Corky!
Olde CP nuts never die - they just recommit themselves...
weird description, I was under the impression all darlingtonia were hardy for UK conditions , don't suppose they'd be hardy for you DVG with those crazy cold winter temps, I'll add a picture of the largest plant I've grown from seed so i can watch it hopefully grow over the next few months , record keeping isn't my strong point but either four or five years old from a selfed plant

dvg: ...where the Ys are worn notwithstanding, there is a lot to consider - inside out, upside down, turned backwards, at halfmast, waistband rolled in or out, the tilt, and all of the combinations and permutations of these subtleties and others not mentioned

dvg: It's truly saddening to me that we've made headlines due to an inept and unaccountable provincial government, paralyzed by politics...
