Hello...

What a gorgeous and healthy cobra "Is it poisonous?"

Almost 99% of my cobra seeding has dies due to unknown reason... maybe it's heating up too much...

Regards
Jonathan

Sigh......unfortunately, seedlings are hard to manage.....they are very sensitive to any changes. Where did you get it from, strath?

Psssttt......those 'heads' are turning here and there to search for prey.........hahaha

Cheers

Thanks guys. It's only small at the moment but hopefully I can settle it in before the hot weather of summer hits.

I picked it up at the VCPS Annual Show. I have posted some pic's from the show in the events section. There weren't too many plants that weren't represented there.

Seedlings can be tough due to there susceptibility to high temps with the small root system. I have a few of these on the go at the moment as well so I am crossing my fingers that I can get a few of them through to maturity.

Seeds are so slow and seedlings are so tough. Looks like I'll never get a darlingtonia.

Cobras need cooled roots as their most important requirement, marvin. Yeah, night time temperature needs to be cool.

Cheers
