    Question about Darlingtonia californica

    SO, I recently repotted this plant. Did i left too much of the plant outside? The part in question is where it's red. It wasn't red before and I think it might be sunburnt. Should I plant it deeper into the pot?

    Darlingtonia "Mountain Form"

    One of my seedling D. californica has been producing mature pitchers for a while, the only one out of around 50 or so that has yet to produce the snake pitchers, and has begun showing some color. Hopefully soon the rest will follow suit, and considering they're growing in relatively low...
