Bought it from California Carnivors. Sarracenia NOrthwest has them from time to time but they're expensive.

Sarracenia Northwest said that they would not be able to sale any cobras this year. not sure why?

Probably low on stock. They may have to wait until they have new ones big enough to sell.

Any tips and tricks you're willing to share? I just bought some cobras from CC. I've done a ton of reading on these guys, but any useful information that you've gotten from a year of caring for them would be great!

I keep mine is dappled Sun, mostly bright shade. They sit in a water tray and I overhead water once a day. They get dormancy in my fridge from around Mid October to about the first week or two of March.

I've been watering once a day as well with distilled water that I keep in the refrigerator. It sounds like that's enough to keep their feet nice and cool.

RE: My now 4 year old Cobras!

Sounds o.k., I use rainwater that sits in the shade. It's cooler than what sits in the Sun. I find they are not as picky as some say. Fun plants!
