    Hi there!

    Iīll spend March and April 2004 in Taiwan and China (province Guangdong) and Iīll surely have plenty of time to check out carnivorous plants in the wild (preferably Nepenthes, but Iīd also be happy about seeing a nice Drosera or Ping). Anyway - thereīs a "minor" problem: I donīt know where to start looking...

    Could anybody give me [exact] locations of natural habitats there?

    Thanks in advance!
    Happy Growing!

    This post in the ICPS List Archives might help;

    Any Pinguicula in Southern China?.

    Looks like ther is just P. alpina and you will have to search the Himalayas for that. It's much easier to go to Switzerland or Austria and use a ski lift! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Good Luck!

    Austria? Hey - thatīs just across the border [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Iīm starting to wonder if there really are no carnivorous plants in that area or if we just donīt know, due to insufficient documentation or whatsoever.

    Thanks a bundle.

    Stefan,

    I didn't realise you lived in Munich, until I checked your profile. You don't even have to leave Germany to see P. alpina, it grows in the nearby Bavarian Alps.

    I think there are Chinese Utric's, like U. warburgii, but I don't know where to look. The closest I've been to China is China Town in London!

    Hi Vic,

    well, Iīm not going there just to check out plants. I was just interested if thereīs a slight chance I might be able to find some while hiking on my free days...

    Anyway, Iīve just found a Taiwanese forum on carnivorous plants and posted my question there. Letīs see whatīll happen...

    Best,
    Stefan
    Happy Growing!
