    Very nice! I went to the mountains today for my rare plants of NC class and saw drosera rotundifolia in a mountain fen. Not quite as exciting as sarracenia but still very cool

    Mcnair, You have to come back soon! I have found more VFT's than I could imagine. When you see so many, it's hard to believe they are endangered. There seems to be a second crop of Saracennia starting and I have found several new clumps of S. rubra.

    Is that a mutate VTF in that last picture?

    Those are some great photos. I agree with wireman seeing dioneaes in the wild just kinda makes me feel diffrent lol. Add seeing natural mutations is simply amazing!

    The photo of the very red VFT has fused cilia.. an interesting mutation. Interestingly, that particular flytrap is surrounded by light green flytraps with minimal coloration from anthocyanin. This must be genetic. For some flytraps, it doesn't matter how much light you give them, they are just not going to turn red. Looking for mutations in Saracennia, flytraps, and drosera is one thing that keeps me going back. I also like to look at the varying soil and water conditions they live in. Some are in areas that flood with rain frequently.. like they are underwater sometimes. Others live in dryer, slightly more elevated areas.. but all are within 20 feet of a picosin.

    I made a quick visit to the Croatan yesterday to see what's going on. For about a month, night time temps have been as low as 30 and daytime temps 40's-70. Drosera are everywhere and some are starting to form hibernaculums while others are not. Sarracenia are variable.. VFT's are in decent shape. Pings are everywhere.
