    I wonder what species of Pinguicula that is?

    Seems like you had a very nice trip. It seems to me that everyone's seeing CPs in the wild now. :P

    Thanks for the comments guys. It was a very cool trip.

    I don't know about any BBC or PBS specials nor any books Av :P. It was very neat though.

    As far as what species of Pinguicula, I have no idea. It could be any that's native to the area, they all look the same to me except for the flowers. We were too late in the year and missed the flowers.

    As far as the wetness factor: I saw pics on SarraceniaNW that showed a large patch of Darlingtonia on a hill side with no stream, fountain or visible water. Blew me away. There has to be something either seasonal or more than meets the eye. What has me intrigued is in the 23rd photo it shows a Drosera surrounded with a white substance. anyone have any idea if they are distillates or mold/fungi?
    Good growing, Jack

    The local name for the white substance is sand. But I shouldn't be a snot about it because I wondered what I was seeing the first time I saw photos from that area. I'm not used to sand being white. Great photos, by the way.

    First I want to say to awgaupp, you should have came, you missed a great trip. I would have been glad to share the over 500 chiggers I had with you. The white moldy stuff in the pic is sand. It's really common in this area. It's the same as the silca sand you buy to put in your cp's.

    The soil is dry, we are just coming out of a historic drought. We've had some rain this year but we are still low. Even when it's wet, most of the cp's here will not be standing in water. The top layer of soil seems dry but it's moist when you dig down more than an inch.


    The ping could have been a Pinguicula caerulea but I believe those are Pinguicula lutea in that area. They are impossible to tell apart when not in flower. Both species are there but from memory, I think that one was a P.lutea.

    To continue the chigger story, Like I said I had over 500. They were from my eyeballs down to my feet. I finally was almost rid of them a week later when I went into the woods to help the local police find some non-cp plants. I added about 30 more to my collection, which was a breeze compared to the week before.

    Crystal thought she was getting a deal when I told her I charge by the chigger. I'm sure she was shocked when she saw the bill, $5 per chigger. Good thing for her I'm willing to finance.

    AV send a camera crew and I can promise that I can give you some A+ entertainment.
