The Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh has a pretty decent Darlingtonia display in the glass house area. These climate-controlled plants looked nice and are sending out lots of new clumps from underground runners.
natchgreyes thank you for the comments. Sorry the rest of the CPs weren't that great aside from a couple generic Nepenthes but they're not even photo-worthy. I was looking at the Darlingtonia enclosure to see if they had any cooling elements in the media but it was impossible to tell; they were housed in a temperate greenhouse although the glass tanks did have electric fans creating a steady breeze over the plants and they were completely enclosed in the tanks.
Manny if you ever get to the UK the RBG is definitely worth seeing. I've seen a few botanical buildings in my life and this one is top-notch. Even compared to Glasgow's, which I thought was just ok but nothing compared to Edinburgh's.
This is just the entrance to the very large and sectioned glasshouse.
It's worth going just to see the giant water lilies but they are dormant starting about January so be sure to go Summer/Autumn to see them.

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

thatoneplantboi: Hey guys, I'm new to growing nepenthes, I'm getting a mini indoor greenhouse to grow them in. What kind of light should I use for them? Also, if you could provide a link to a product, it would be very much appreciated

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
