    Nothing to be sorry about, I am not saying it is ugly or anything I just don't think it is out and out stunning. It is still a very nice plant and quite a solid grower.

    I'll see if I can get some pictures up, might be a bit though...

    Barry Rice and I have had a discussion on the differences in the populations in Georgia, and North/South Carolina. Pics of his Georgia excursion are in the BobZ archives of sarr photos, and can be viewed anytime. The Georgia plants are noticeably different, and a lot of the plants in this population do not have the tightly rolled hoods, and some do. It is always best to research any and all you can find on a plant before pronouncing it a fraud. The plant you have, Jerry, has been verified the montana form by Ron Gagliardo of ABG. Whoever said yours was NOT the montana form would do well to study all the forms from NC/SC and montanas from Georgia. I believe Ron Gagliardo, personally.

    Sorry for the delay Bugweed, I've been away from the forum for awhile. Here's a picture of my plant as it were in 2003.


    The pics on Bobz's website now. The history behind this clone (Jeremy and I have the same clone) is unknown to us.

    Homer, the history of your plant is this:
    Hails from North Carolina
    Henderson County
    McClure's Bog
    There are quite a few of these out there, the Georgia form being harder to come by. I have 2 Georgia Forms (Pic seen, Pitcher Plant Forum, topic is Bugweeds in September.) This is the closest I have seen this form (Georgia) having the tightly rolled hood. And it isn't much. I am still after the Henderson County form. Sooner or later, it will show up. Ron Dettermann promised Barry a few of them, and has not come through yet, but I am sure he will when Barry gets grayer! There is a stand in South Carolina too, but since they are just the same look as Henderson Co, N.C., they are not easy to find in collections. I won't tell where they are, but everyone should know IMO. If these plants were in common cultivation, they wouldn't have to be hidden and sat on by the eggheads to be hatched out like chickens. Everyone SHOULD have one in their collection, and they should be able to visit them in their wild homes just to appreciate the bog and its inhabitants. Same for the s. oreophila's and all the other plants presently in cultivation, CITES plants or not. If they were common in cultivation, they would not have to be hidden at all. But then, the powers that be would feel a loss of control, and we can't have that!!!!!!
