    Wow! Last year's field looks really impressive.

    I look forward to hearing further updates regarding the situation. It sounds like it could either be drought (hopefully) or massive poaching - hopefully someone can get a first-hand look and report back. Once someone actually visits the site I would think one or the other would be pretty clear.

    It would seem poaching on this level would have been for one massive (illegal) sale because as it stands any flava of this variety will now be under heavy scrutiny.

    Im very, very sorry to tell you this, but the rumors are 100%
    true. Only about 5-25 plants were left alone.
    Around 4000 were taken. Look in the U.S national sarracenia collection
    in "you need a reason?!" topic.

    Starman you need to read a little more closely.

    That is a conditional statment indicating that there is no confirmation.

    I too am working on getting information from ABG and considering I am in ATL it is probably a bit easier for me. I will be there this weekend. I don't know who Mike has been talking to but I know most of the big names there. I will pass on what I know

    Hi Travis,
    I got the info from Jim Miller. Action to get confirmation seems to be in hand. I find it hard to believe there were plants there in quantity in May and only a handful by September were just down to drought. Jim is very well respected and a loss like this would be extremely distressing if this was the case. I was looking for comfirmation either way by starting this thread.
    Best Regards

    If this has happened (and that is still an 'if') then I suggest we all keep our eyes and ears open. Someone who takes that many plants is going to want to off load them as fast as possible, probably to try and make a quick buck. If anyone hears of red tube flavas going for cheap prices or of bulk sales of them then please get back to myself, SarraceniaObsessed, Mike or Barry Rice. All of us have contacts who can probably take it to the next level.

    I made a post to the listserv and recieved a quick reply from someone I trust who knows the site pretty well.

    So from the sound of it the site was not poached and it is doing just fine.

    Okay, I have talked to ABG and they have an individual heading to check the site who is very familiar with the area. I will post here whatever they find and we can go from there.

    I have also made this a topic on the listserv and have recieved a number of emails on it. Unfortunatly they do not clear the issue up any but they do seem to confirm the observations that something might be happening at the site. However it is a good possibility that it is strictly due to the drought in the region.
