Hi, I'm new to the forum. I don't have any CP's of my own, but I am very interested in conservation of the picosin habitat in which CP's live. A few miles from where I live, the Croatan forest contains pine savannas and picosins which form the natural habitat for these plants in my area. Pine savannas once covered most of the Southeast coastal region and now, less than 3% of this habitat remains. Below is a photo of a typical savanna with longleaf pines and wire grass. This wire grass is highly flammable and CP's rely on fire to burn off competing plants and the best growth of CP's occurs the year after a fire. The U.S. Park Service does control burns on a regular basis to preserve this habitat. The pines are over 100 years old, but due to poor soil conditions they look much younger. Their trunks are blackened from fire, but they tolerate the burns well. There are also wild orchids and rare wildflowers and endangered butterfly's that grow in this environment and they also depend on fire.
In the photo below, the pine savanna borders a low picosin or swamp on the left. It is at this border or "ecotone" that most of the CP's grow. In the photo, you can see some pitcher plants (light green plants) in the distance on the left, just at the border of the picosin.
