    Sarracenia alata in Eastern Texas

    I went on a psuedo-vacation to East Texas this year, to see carnivorous plants in Texas. I wasn't really amazed with the display as it was overgrown with grass and the soil seemed very dry to the touch. Pics where taken at two trails in The Big Thicket National Preserve, the trails being the Sundew Trail, and the Pitcher Plant Trail. I did not see any Drosera, Utricularia, nor Pinguicula as I had expected too. I only took pictures and did not take any plants with me.
    First we stopped by a visitor center where I saw some S. alata growing along the edge of the building, decided not to take pictures. I did take pictures of the huge model they had inside the visitor center, though.






    Model of Utricularia in habitat.


    After that, we went to our first stop, the Sundew Trail where I did not see any Drosera at all.

    Nope, the trails where miles away from the visitor center, I guess they just planted them there for show.
