Darlingtonia californica, commonly known as the Cobra Lily or California Pitcher Plant belongs to the Sarraceniaceae family. The most striking feature of Darlingtonia californica is its leaves, which resemble the head of a cobra about to strike. The leaves are tubular, green to reddish-green, and they have a translucent ‘window’ near the top, which lures insects into the trap. Darlingtonia californica is typically found in cool, wet, and acidic environments. Its native range includes parts of northern California and Oregon, particularly the Klamath Mountains and the southern Oregon Coast Range. To successfully grow a Cobra Lily the key is to mimic its native bog-like conditions as closely as possible.
