Welcome!

Do you already have the Cobra Lily? I'm surprised if you found a place to buy a plant but I have periodically seen seeds for sale. They are extremely difficult to grow without meeting their very exacting growing conditions.

Your photo is taken from an Amazon listing. Before you buy, read the reviews.

From seed? It takes a few years to grow to adult size. They aren't hard to start but require cool temps at the root level during the growing season.

Wow gorgeous. I had them a few years ago very difficult to keep and grow.
They are a great conversation piece. Needs exact conditions kinds of finicky and challenging to grow. They like roots in moist conditions plants and moist mist.warm temps and direct light day and cool temps at night.Good attraction area for flying insects for plant. If you have a area to install a mister in warm sunny area very helpful for growing conditions. Speciality greenhouses have them or ask them to get them for you.
In early spring season start one from a stolen on moist peat. In a few weeks a pitcher will grow to maturity in three months in some areas and conditions will grow faster. Use purified water to grow.

Good luck.
