I bought a cobra lily from lowes and was going to put it in my bog garden but then i wanted it for inside and i already took it out from its pot and didnt want to put it back in. So i got a pot from my grandpa's shed. The pot is about 10 inces wide and the cobra lily is about 2" across full length. How long until it spreads all through the pot?
I'd say that'd take a while. At least 2 years if you give em perfect conditions. Don't forget to keep the roots cool. I got a cobra lily from Lowes as well and I put it in a 4-5 inch pot, not sure which, but it's already stretched out to the majority of the pot and it's only been a few months. They grow fast if you make em happy!
Why don't you try growing it in LFS (Long Fibre Sphagnum Moss). I had the best success with mine when I grew them in an aquatic plant basket in pure LFS. I placed the plants in a window of the house that was on the east side (eastern exposure). Every morning before I went to work I tossed ice cubes in the drip tray. I made the ice cubes using rain water.

wow glad to hear your plants are alive i bought my first cobra lily from lowes about 5 years ago...sadly not knowing how to take care of it. it died...and i havent seen them at lowes or homedepot since then however they do sell some butterworts, venus flytraps, and some drosera which they call an octupus plant.
