    Drosera Conservation (intermedia, rotundifolia)

    So.. I've been saving all of my LFS proceeds for the last couple of months for this cause. After saving up $150 I bribed my buddy to stop mowing his foot path on the North East end of the bog. I really wanted this place to be able to grow to it's full potential. After 2 months of constant rain, sunshine, and growing.. this is what it looks like.





    Freshly grown LFS



    D. intermedia

















    D. rotundifolia









    Cool guy chillin' on the car when I returned.

    Amazing. I still get surprised by the D. rotundifolia popping up in your moss from time to time Even got some that are already trying to flower on me.

    Beautiful! If he needs to have a path there, maybe he could build a raised walkway. It's a little costly but if built right they can last a very long time, and because it keeps the ground from being trampled it protects against compaction and degradation. Plus it'd keep your boots from getting muddy and look really cool too.

    Great shots! Is that the only place these grow is on the foot path?

    Hey thanks! They actually grow as far as the eye can see. They are just more abundant on the path.

    The interesting thing is that mowing this area might be contributing to a more abundant population of drosera. When mowing you area actual removing competing plants that could very well be blocking sunlight and suffocating the plants.

    Very nice looking plants.
