While trekking through through the wetlands surrounding the pond near my house I found large amounts of sphagnum moss. The area had very sandy soil, constant water, and lots of sun. It is a beautiful area, except it has been neglected greatly. There is trash everywhere, and people used the area as a dumping ground in the 70's. There are no cps but there are other bog plants like xyris. I am thinking of starting a project to clean it up and to protect it. There are no cps, but there probably were a long time ago. I would like to plant some Purpureas, utrics like inflata, and drosera like filiformis, intermedia, and rotundifolia. I have found various bog plants such as rhexia there. They have even colonized my artificial bog.
UPDATE: I have now done more research on the area and have discovered much more suitable places. There are massive pristine mats of sphagnum scattered along the ground and there is shallow water in between. It is very sunny in most spots and is surrounded by a thick barrier of button bushes, blueberries, and various other shrubs. I will try to take a few good photos, but it is very extensive and is hard to capture in a few photos. We have found no Drosera or anything at all and have checked very thoroughly. I think it would be a good idea to at least put a few seeds of plants from nearby locations. Please give me your feedback.
