A person named Tre Bond just mailed me, with news of a road widening project occurring in Florida, south of Jacksonville on 210. He says the road widening project will be killing the local population of Pinguicula lutea, P. caerulea, P. pumila, Drosera capillaris, and D. brevifolia. If you are interested in saving some of these plants, you should contact Tre Bond and see if he’ll send them to you. I have no idea of how old Tre is, or his resources, so I would encourage you to offer to pay for all postage charges. And please, I hope no “sharks” take advantage of him and fail to reimburse him for plants (even if they arrive dead)—it’s important to encourage local activism.
Also, please make sure, in your correspondence with Tre, that he’s taking these plants legally and with cooperation from the road crew!
His address is:
3000 Santee Place
