    Not a single strand of sphagnum?

    Nice CPs nevertheless... Is there any sphag at all?

    Pine next time I go I'll take a bunch of sphagnum pics just for you. I'm planning on visiting nearly every possible Sarracenia site in NC come Spring. I'll take pics of the sphag too while I'm at it.

    I have Croatan Sphagnum photos. Just need to edit them. There's some nice mats of S. compactum there, and carolinianum.

    I spent the afternoon in the Croatan yesterday and it's amazing that there are still CP's to be seen. The only VFT's around are covered by thick wire grass. I guess they are protected from the frost. Drosera are forming hibernacula.

    I can't imagine how awesome it would be to see CP's in the wild growing so beautifully. I've had dreams about that. Honestly. The dream was awesome, but it got a little wacky, like when I realized that neps don't grow in RI. And that neps don't have other neps growing in their pitchers off into infinity...although that would be kind of awesome. Anyway love those pics. Sounds like you had a lot of fun.

    Here's an update with a few photos from a visit to the Croatan a couple of weeks ago.


    I love the bug carcass.. I didn't even notice this when I was taking the photo.

    Those are some vibrant colors!
